I'm going to give this a go this weekend!  I'm after a pre run meal/snack that'll set me up for the run, any ideas?  Am training to do an ultra event next year so want to get training now!

Porridge, of course!

This one should get you rocking if you use the cider option they suggest.

On my morning long runs, my pre-run meal is eaten at about 6pm the previous day. Not eating first thing might help your training to more efficiently burn fat on your ultra training. Your pre-run snack will just get your carb burners fired up. But if you must .. Porridge

I loved the cider suggestion, too, as I fail to believe the cooking time is enough to evaporate the alcohol.  Start the day as you mean to go on

Pre-run I'll just have a banana or white toast with honey.  I do shorter runs on fresh air, but Also-ran is tougher than me!

Jools, my tough image is blown. 9 miles into todays run I was feeling short on energy. Rather than go for a gel, I diverted to Windsor, stopped at Patisserie Valerie, and had a mille feuille.

Mille feuille v gel is no contest.  Don't blame you!

I don't tend to eat first unless the run is over 15 miles, but I now think I am going to have a pint of cider and a pretty pastry and see what happens.
