    @Cavegirl - We used they're an American site, but ship to UK for very competitive rates!

      This place is pretty good for a lot of Primal ingredients in the UK.,
      Healthy Supplies: Health Food Online.
      Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

        So huge thanks for the link, those primal energy bars are ace! I ate one about 30mins before running, I reckon eating another about 10k in would have helped too. I'll experiment some more!!

        Ps. We made small balls rather than bars - easier to manage on a run I thought. So we got about 24 balls out of a batch of that recipe.
        Awesome! Glad to hear it went better. The small balls would be a lot easier. I may try that when I get home. I got my wife to bake some for me yesterday and she's sending them out to me. I can't wait.

        Take care!

          A little update for you all...

          Today I went for a 14k trail run (moderate hills). I ate a 'grok ball' (that's what I'm calling the primal energy balls from now on) 2 hours before I ran (nothing else eaten before this morning prior to running) and then another grok ball at 8k into the run - felt great! I wasn't pushing the pace by any means, averaged 7:08 min/km, and kept my heart rate below 70% effort (I wasn't wearing an HR monitor, but I can gauge it pretty well).

          Ps. I tried to up my carbs slightly yesterday especially at dinner with double helpings of squash, but despite my efforts only managed about 95g.

            Glad it seems to be working for you. I'm looking forward to getting my mileage back up when I can. I miss those long runs. They always seem a bit more enjoyable though when I run with my wife and let her take the lead.
