In your opinion, what are the best brands of energy gels (for during the race) and electrolyte drinks (recovery) to use?

The most important issue when choosing a brand is to find out what the event that you're training for will provide on race day. You should use that brand during training so you get used to it.

Eating or drinking anything new on race day is always risky. For general training and recovery certain brands work better for some than others. You need to try different options and work out what's best for you.

I feel lethargic in the day if I have too many carbs. Can this have the same effect when running?

I do most of my training runs after work and before my evening meal. When's the best time to eat a pre-run meal to ensure I am fuelled up?
