Eating for split workouts

Recommended Posts

Every once in awhile, I take on days during my marathon training (mainly during mileage cutback weeks) where I will run my shorter long run (8-10 miles) and then go to the gym with my husband and do a lifting workout. The two-part workout is most likely split with about 60-75 minutes in between, usually to nurse my daughter (otherwise I'd just go straight to the gym and there wouldn't be quite the time gap). In this instance, how should I approach pre/postWO meals? Should I just eat some protein between the two parts of my workout or do pro/fat or pro/carb? Or nothing at all even though there's about an hour or so between my two workouts? If it makes any difference, the format is usually run followed by weights.

Thanks!
