Runners - what do you eat *during* long training runs? This is my first day of Whole 30 and my half-marathon training mileage is starting to climb. Feeling intimidated - first long run is in 2 days.
What are good substitutes for gu, shot blocks, etc?
Easier to carry is better. I don't have a whole lot of room in my race belt to go lugging a sweet potato around with me.

I find I can happily head out for a short run or hill/sprint workout early morning without eating before hand- am on day 18 now and it feels easier than in the first week. I will eat something (eggs with bit of veg and some healthy fat) before a long run (anything more than 45 -60 minutes) or I will feel like I am running on empty. did a nice primal work out this morning- warm up jog- 7 hill sprints (on some steps in the bush), 50 squat, 30 dips, 15 push ups and jog home in the pouring rain

Where do I find the Whole 30 guidance on what to eat pre- and post-workouts? I have ISWF but I haven't finished reading it yet. Is there a blog or something that i'm missing? Protein and fat beforehand, protein and carbs after?

Dates stuffed with homemade nut butter. Drop the nut butter into a ziplock bag, cut off the corner and squeeze into each end of the pitted date. Flash freeze in a single layer, then wrap individually (or sets of 2) in wax paper. Keep frozen until you leave for your run, keep them in a ziplock bag during your run. The nut butter will ooze a bit so it helps to have any potential mess contained in a snack-size ziplock. They have been my saving grace during my long runs (currently training for a marathon, running 20 tomorrow).
