Eating before or after exercise is a personal preference. That is why its so important during training to *listen to your body*. I don't normally eat before my short runs (any runs I do under an hour) but I will eat something at small before my long runs.

Do you eat before you run? I don't usually eat before I exercise, since I usually do this first thing in the morning. This morning I tried to increase my time (1 min walk-4 min run) and only made it about a half hour. I had to walk home. I wonder if it was because I had an empty stomach.
