Runners need sustained energy to fuel intense trainings or lengthy runs. Complex carbs like quinoa, oats, and whole wheat are absorbed slowly, offering the body a steady energy supply. For an added bonus, they also supply a good amount of necessary protein. Because complex carbs take longer to digest, they should be consumed a couple hours before a workout.
