From the June 2012 issue of Runner’s World
A pre-run bar gets you through any length run
By Jessica Girdwain and Anthony Meade
|30- TO 60-MINUTE RUN|
You need 15–30 grams of carbs.
TRY Go Natural Full of Fruit. This 35g bar is compact enough to avoid tummy trouble but is packed with nearly 500kJ, 26.6g of carbs and less than 1g of fat.
|60- TO 90-MINUTE RUN|
You need 30–60 grams of carbs.
TRY Musashi Growling Dog energy bar. At 65g and with a decent dose of high quality protein this bar will keep the hunger away and prime you for your run.
|90-MINUTE TO 2-HOUR RUN|
You need 60–90 grams of carbs.
TRY Sanitarium One Square Meal Cranberry with Manuka Honey. Higher in kilojoules and carbohydrates, two bars are perfect fuel ahead of long runs.
