Have A Pre-Workout Snack
Research has proven time and time again that restoring blood sugars after a fasting state with a carbohydrate-rich snack before the run will not only extend endurance but will also lower perceived effort — meaning you can go longer and harder, burning more calories for weight loss. To help rebuild blood sugars for enhanced endurance, aim at consuming 400-600 carbohydrate calories in the two hours leading up to the event start. For example, a plain English muffin topped with one tablespoon of peanut butter and a sliced banana would be an ideal snack, with water or a sports drink to wash it down.
