I recently found a new favorite bar to have before my morning runs, or really most other times of day.
These Verb Bars are amazing, they are 90 calories and have as much caffeine as an expresso.
I am a hardcore believer in coffee before morning runs:
You need to experiment and find what works best for you, some people need very simple food and no coffee, I can’t live without mine. For runs less than an hour I will usually just have coffee (with creamer). For workouts over an hour or if I am feeling particularly hungry I will have a little something. Some of my favorites include:
- Cliff Shot blocks
- Natures Bakery Fig Bars
- These protein balls
What are your pre run favorites?
