Attempted week 9 run 2 today. I don't usually run in the morning but did today as it's been so hot. I thought I'd try. Others seem to have luck with it. I didn't have a full breakfast as I was keen to get out before the sun was out. I thought a piece of toast and an apple might do. 16 minutes into the run however my blood sugar crashed and I crashed out. I sat shaky in a beautiful rose garden in the town gardens - there are worse places to ride out a sugar crash - which I term "blunking."
And let's throw hayfever into the mix too for good measure.
This was frustrating as run 1 went so well, even if I dawdled the last ten minutes.
I want to do a park run next weekend, which is 9am, so I need to get the timing and food right. I'll try again tomorrow - jumbo oats - lower GI than bread and cereals.
What do other morning runners do? What about food the night before? I think I loaded up too much on carbs too.
