Love running, cycling, martial arts, adventure races and lifting heavy things. Not interested in big city marathons, but love the small ones with fewer people. Bring on the pain!

Eoin O Some background first; our Kenpo system (ikku.ie) grades white, yellow, orange, purple, blue, green, brown, black...
As I'm going for green belt in 6 weeks, last night our instructor said, "Going from green belt to brown is like going from primary school to secondary school. Going from brown belt to black is like going from secondary school to college." Sounds ominous! Anyone gone through these levels and have tips to share?

Eoin O answered the question Should I eat before I go running or should I eat after running?
If you eat a carbohydrate based diet, then it would be best to get carbs in before the run, even a banana or two. I don't rely on carbs, so I can and have run up to 3 hours pre-breakfast with just water on the run.
