On monday I will be running the mile in school. Normally I get, well last yr for instance, was 9min. ish (bad I know). That was when I was much heavier. I have biked all last summer, and lost about 25 pounds since.
Is there anything I can take prior to running that will help me with endurance? I just got back on the bike 2 days ago after taking about 3-4 weeks off from a messed up chain. Im still a big guy..6'3 225, but Im not a horrible runner. It's going to be 80 out, yikes.
I thought about liquid l-carnitine maybe 30 min before or right right before. Should I drink a lot of water? I get pretty thirsty running.
