There is a unique balance of dietary intake before a run or workout. You need to have the nutrients necessary to get you through the workout or run, but not something that will make you feel heavy, increase chances of side-aches, or slow you down. Here are three easy ideas for a pre-run/workout snack. Suggestion, eat one hour before your workouts.
- Glass of milk and a couple graham crackers
- Whole grain waffle and peanut butter
- Trail mix (make your own with ½ cup cereal, 2 tablespoons nuts and 2 tablespoons dried fruit)
