I am looking for ideas on what to eat for my early morning runs. I go out with a running group twice a week, I need to be ready to run at 5am. We go on average 10k and the pace can be quite demanding (at least for me) or we do speedwork. I need something that can be eaten/drunk in the car on my way. I can pre-prep the night before but I have to be very quiet in the morning. At the moment I have one of those liquid breakfast things which does work well but I am looking for less artificial options. I have tried a banana, it is not enough. I try and eat a good meal the night before but still need something in the morning. I am sure this has been discussed lots of times, still, any ideas? What do other runners do for early morning runs?
Hi all! Does anybody have experience with the Deuter SL Compact 10 backpack for running?
My OMM needs replacing and I am looking into alternative options. I would like some pockets at the waistbelt or shoulder straps, it has to hold a hydration bladder (in a way that the tube is securely held in place on the shoulder straps, which the OMM does not do very well).
The Deuter pack is made for cycling and seems to have a metal 'rod' thread through the back padding. I have found in other packs that this can be very irritating when running, as it can make the pack very rigid. I was wondering if anybody has used it????
I have tried on the osprey talon but only the 'longer' version (20l???) - it feels very comfortable, it really hugs your body and felt perfect for running but it was too long for me (I am about 5'2), the slightly smaller version (?18l) may be perfect.
