I do fine with my ordinary training runs -- running a few miles, drinking some sport drink here and there. But I've started to add speed work and hill drills and such in, and I wonder whether there is something I need to do before an interval workout in the a.m. When I was just doing the Couch to 5K plan, I seemed to be okay with a pretty ordinary breakfast -- a slice of toast with peanut butter, and a cup of coffee. That doesn't cut it for me if I run fast though. What should I do to help me last better through the brief but intense morning runs? I feel like I'm a failure when I start to be exhausted almost before I begin!
