What to snack on before I run my 800?

Answered By Nutritionist Will

Question

What should I bring to a meet to snack on for fuel before I run my 800?

Answer

Best fuel of choice is carbohydrates, and simple carbs are best. I recommend dried fruits. Bars can be convenient though some may be unnecessarily high in sugar from added sugars and chocolate; I recommend considering making your own bars. Dried fruits are great as well, as is the classic banana! Citrus. Keep caloric intake to less than 200 within an hour of the 800.
