Looking for some advice! I've started running at 5am as work and young kids take up the rest of my day and night. Only problem is im not sure if I should be eating something beforehand. I get up at 04.30 run at 5 for an hour then have quick brekky, protien shake and bath b4 going to work at 06.30. Im worried that my body is just burning the muscles if I've no fuel in me. Obviously getting up earlier would give me time to eat and digest something but I get little enough sleep as it is.
