What did you eat / drink before your long runs?

Do not eat / drink something new different on the day of the marathon I would say.

Need nutrition advice. Doing a marathon at end of April. During my long runs after 20km I'm out of energy. What should I eat before and during long runs. Before I have slice of toast and coffee and energy gels after during. It's not working past a certain point.
before doing a long training/marathon run i'd have more to eat beforehand than a slice of toast!! i'd have something along the lines of either porridge, banana and toast or cereal plus bit of chocolate just before i leave. that works so far for me but everybodys different.

What do you have during the run?
usally gels altough some of these have given me an upset stomach during a race so i sometimes try to avoid taking too many. i have also carried marshmallows, jellybabies, jelly beans or skittles anything that will give you a boost. some of the proper runners on here pobably will have different nutrients to eat during race. try different things and if your happy stick with it. is this your 1st marathon? good luck with it.

It is yeah. Done halfs before.

Same boat as yourself mrdeeds, doing Paris on 9th April - I go for 2 slices of toast with peanut butter & banana about an hour before setting off on long run and during I alternate at each 5km with a tracker bar & winegums. Have tried gels got on ok, though stomach didn't feel great 1 week (not sure if that was gel related), but have stuck to the trackers & wingums due to availability.

Guys whats the best smart/fit watch to go with? Looking at fitbit and tomtom with a of a budget around 100

Depends what you are looking it for - I have a Nike+ watch, have it since Christmas '13 nothing fancy but it has done the job for me, can grab a heartrate monitor for it if required and a shoe pod for treadmill running, it is powered by TomTom, I would vouch for that at the cost as well but it is GPS running watch only.

As above the likes of this is what has me doubting new fancy trainers - while I'm sure there is a counter study which dispels this I would welcome experience of yourselves.

Bit of advise if you would - since I started running a few years ago I have been using Asics Hyperspeed racing shoes (not flats), I kind of fell into wearing them and as they never caused me any problems I was wary of changing. Now to date my longest run has been around the 14km mark but I am in the process of training for Paris marathon in April.

I suppose my question is whether you would look at going for something with a bit more support or leave well enough alone.

These are the trainers I am in at the minute;

That time of year again! Strangford Festival 10k this Friday night at 7pm. Entries available on the night at Inverbrena Community Centre. Great location, great route, great prizes, great race pack and fantastic grub afterwards! Hopefully some of you can make it.

hopefully make it - though will take it handy, match Saturday - any other day/night this week to register? might get the in-laws to get on to it for me.

You can see the distasteful publicity he is already attracting which is unedifying.I can see our top boss bringing his other chav mates like John Terry to the club too and we will rapidly transform our club from one that is universally loved to one that is hated.

I give it 3 weeks 'til the whole thing goes up in flames

It is important to sign the right character of player who fits in with the unique ethos.Do any of the new players fit the bill? We are be drawn into the chav/ now and the club doesnt need this.

Out of interest, what exactly has Sinclair done to be deemed unfit to wear the Celtic shirt?

went shopping with the wife I think

Still far from convincing,and lucky to get a win.No evidence of game plans,or a trajectory of improvement, nor growing in confidence.Contrast this with Man Utd's noticeable improvement today in Mourinho's first serious game in charge

I agree, should have gone with Mourinho instead of Rodgers

Br Walfield? Knowledgable you are!

Undeniable facts.

Rodgers is paid substantially more than any recent Celtic boss.He wouldn't be there otherwise.

He has been promised substantial funds to buy players.He wouldn't be there otherwise.

The team is not performing against lesser opposition.

Rodgers has no long term strategy apart from getting himself back to the EPL

If Rogers succeeds I'll be the first to applaud him.I don't see any signs though.Defeated by Lincoln was three times worse than England's defeat to Iceland.The guy has arrogance but no.passion and as he proved.with Liverpool does not learn from his mistakes.

None of Celtic's potential opponents in next round can match us in terms of player budgets,fanbase,history etc.I doubt Stephen Kenny earns as much as 2% of Rogers salary.So there is no excuse for failure.

I hear fanbase and history have a huge impact on performance on the pitch these days.

That along with manager salary are the deciding factors in match results

Did a bit on the turbo trainer last night and knee felt grand. Much better today also. Have any of you been to Amphibian King to buy runners? Might go and get that gait analysis done and buy a new pair. I hear great reviews about Amphibian King.

In general have many of you found much use in gait analysis?

I have noticed this past while that I am getting pain up my inner leg from the ankle half way up my lower leg and wonder whether my footwear are a cause of it. I do tend to foot strike with the inside of my foot first (if that makes sense)
