Track is hard work but is defintely essential for speedwork!  After last night which was so cold I could not feel my fingers and toes!

My fave pre-run snack in the evening especially if its going to be more than a 10k is a banana and a handful of nuts (not the m&ms - as can be fattening!

I was out running with the club last night and I was frozen too!!. Someone at the club suggested a few slices of Warbuton fruit loaf. I've never heard of it, but is it worth a try of a few slices before a run?. I quite like fruit, but can't imagine it in a loaf of bread..lol..

I would love to do track work.

Yep its lovely - or there is Soreen which is also a fruit loaf - they do a cinnamon version which is lovely witha bit of low fat spread!

 Trackwork is good especially if you want faster times - I find its the only way to get your times down.

You have to find out what works for you. I know people who claim to be able to eat a full breakfast just minutes before a long run. Buney suggest coffee with milk -- that wouldn't work for me either.

I leave at least 3 hours between eating and running, and even then, the meal can't be too big. Before a long weekend run I'll usually have a bagel and banana with a black coffee. I avoid dairy products as my stomach doesn't appreciate them before a run.

For shorter runs I don't need any sustenance, but certainly like to eat afterwards.
