I have a bit of a sensitive stomach when it comes to running. Despite an entire season (and then some) of training for the Marathon I never quite figured out what to do about fuel pre run. I ended up going with a small amt of oatmeal or 1/2 an english muffin, trying to keep my consumption to a minimum. Now I am back at the same game again, but hoping to make it right this time. Since the longest run I have to do is 11 miles, I'm not as panicky about it as I was facing 18's and 20's ... but yet it still seems like something I need to figure out.
Almost all of the blogs I read talk about what they eat pre-run / pre-race, but I am thinking maybe I need to move to something liquid? I have tried oatmeal, toast, english muffins, bananas ... and just not eating at all. What are the options out there for pre-run liquid nutrition? I saw a few things that suggested making a shake - but they mention yogurt or milk powder. I'm thinking dairy is a no-no for anyone pre-run, but maybe some people with iron-clad stomachs can handle it.
Anyone out there know of a pre run liquid meal? (Since we know beer is only good post run)
