I eat lunch at 1 and usually go running at 6:30 or 7 so I definitely need a snack beforehand. A banana is usually perfect. I usually don't need a snack before strength training because for some reason I don't get that "my limbs are too heavy" running out of energy feeling when I do strength.
I really have a hard time with morning exercise. This morning I whipped up the perfect pre-running breakfast a banana with 2 tbsp peanut butter and 20g spelt museli, and ran an hour later. I still experienced the same lethargic lack of energy as I always do when I try to run in the morning, only less severely than in the past. I think my body just really doesn't like morning exercise; my evening runs usually have me bursting with energy. This wouldn't be a problem except that most running events are in the morning.
