morning workout fuel suggestions?

beelzebozo | Jun 20, 2008 02:49 PM

i start a new job in roughly a month, which will significantly shuffle my workout schedule. i would like to run before i go to work, but such an endeavor inevitably requires you to have a good amount of energy quickly after you wake up.

so what i need are suggestions from you chowhounders: what do you eat to quickly have something on your stomach, refuel your body's energy, and get going in the morning? i'm planning on waking up at roughly 6am, and will only have an hour or so for whatever i eat to settle and give me some energy to burn.

my morning runs are intense--usually 1-1.5 hours, sometimes with some lifting--and so it will need to be quite a special breakfast (quick, easy on the stomach, energy-providing).

any help?
