    I have to step up my cardio, and have to move it to early morning to fit it into my schedual. I my goals are endurance, and my workouts consists of intervall training(4x4 and hill sprints).

    I wonderer how you guys plan your breakfast before morning cardio? I prefer to eat about 2 hours before a run, but thats no longer an option...

    Lately: chicken patties, two bananas, and at least 16oz of water.

    Generally: a little bit of protein, some carbs, and lots of water.

    Any way that you can get sugar, sodium, potassium, and water into your system without ingesting too many calories, whether it be a piece of fruit, Gu, Shot Blocks, Gatorade, water with salt & sugar added...

    BTW, what do you mean when you say your goal is endurance?

    Tried a shake, water and some sports drink(like gatorade) before my run. It went all right, but felt a bit bloated. Gonna try some fruit tomorrow.


    Just trying to specify that I don't run to loose weight. English is not my native language, so my apologies of the sentence didn't make sense.

    I understand english isn't your first language but that statement doesn't narrow down what you mean by endurance.

    Endurance is usually trained by doing extended periods of an activity at a specific intensity, not with intervals and sprints.

    I used to take dextrose in water when I only had 30 minutes between waking up and interval training. About half the calories burned seemed enough to give a consistent effort.

    I eat after... your body switches fuel sources after so many minutes of LISS.
