Oh my goodness, I'd say you did! Wow - great run, WTG!

That Garmin info is pretty slick - I might just have to be a really good girl so Santa can bring me one of those for Christmas!

I ate a bowl of puffed rice and a cup of coffee at 7:30 a.m. and was out the door to run by 8:00. Without some food, I find myself bonking after about 45 minutes. However, yesterday I did a spin class inside and any food in the preceding 90 minutes would have been a very BAD idea. I need to eat at least 1 and half to two hours before spinning.

It's definitely an individual preference. I wait longer than a lot of my friends or else I get side stitches. It also varies on what type of workout I'm doing. I need to wait longer before running if I'm doing any hard running than if I'm just running easy.

Usually a BARE minimum of 3-4 hours and nothing big, maybe a small smoothie two hours before, but frankly that's not really working for me. So right now I'm heading out for a run after a turkey dinner - though a very light/small portioned one - about 2 hours ago. hahahahha - wish me luck ;o) (I'm only going for 5k)

Update: FABULOUS! I am no longer as afraid of eating before a run. ahhhhh....what moonlight magic! Ok, 1-2 hours, something with protein.

It varies -- I have eaten a PB&J sandwich and gone right out the door. But usually it's about an hour.

I run first thing in the morning, so I guess it's about 12 hours.

I often run right after eating a small amount such as piece or two of toast. It isn't a problem as long as it isn't too hot. Also, I tend to drink coffee right before a run - again not a problem, I just can't put milk in it (almond milk is fine, but regular causes nausea)

How long do you wait after eating to run?
