Should you eat before sprint training? Best does recommend limiting fibrous, high-fat sources, as these foods take longer to digest and may cause gas and bloating. You should be fine waiting an hour or two after eating and before sprinting, as long as you only ate something small and not a meal. (In that case, you’d want to wait 2-3 hours to fully digest.)
Should I eat before or after sprints? You should eat within the first 30 minutes after your running to replenish your body’s glycogen stores and important to not go longer than 2 hours. Eating a proper amount of carbs and protein after running is essential.
How long before a sprint should I eat? Though food is fuel for runners, eating a large meal too soon before going out for a run can lead to digestive problems like cramping or diarrhea. Instead, try to wait at least 3 hours after a meal before going for a run.
