I bought a cheap blender yesterday so that i could make my own energy drinks. I got the idea from this months running magazine. I used one banana, half an apple, a handful of porridge oats & just a enough milk to make it a nice smooth drink. Half an hour later i went for my midweek 3 mile run & was suprised how much more energy i had in my legs & did my PB for 3 miles.
Has anyone got any good ideas for recipes whether it be a good meal full of carbs to keep the legs going that extra mile or a homemade energy drink to give you an all round power boost.
As loyd grossman would say "IT'S OVER TO YOU"
I always have about 1 hour before my run:http://www.myprotein.co.uk/formulas/our-formulas/tri-carb/ in water, works wonders! Have a banana with it but not blended in.
Is there anything on the blue "Health" tab at the top? There's lots of stuff on nutrition.

I remember Boris Becker stuffing bananas down himself during Wimbledon. They didn't do him any harm... do you reckon it is the banana that is the energy booster?
Anyway, I make this sometimes... one banana, one or two ripe kiwis, one pot plain Actimel, couple of large spoonfuls of plain live yoghurt. If consistency is not as liquid as you like, just add milk... Blend. Wash up. Then drink.
