Default Competetive athletes & sports nutritionists....workout & game-day eating?

Athletes of OT, tell me about your power foods, and eating schedule relative to workouts & game-time. Based on my workout & game schedule, should I be doing anything differently?

NIGHT TRAINING SCHEDULE:
Weekday rugby training is 8-10pm, running, sprinting, drills, full contact rugby matchups. I eat a big, healthy lunch around 12-1pm. (Today was big-bowl noodle soup from a REAL ramen house.) Maybe a granola bar at 3-4pm, then after that I can't have anything in my stomach or I'll hurl or feel somewhat ill throughout practice.

WEEKEND GAMEDAY:
Big pasta (or other carb) meal the night before....try not to eat too much. Games are usually 1pm, gotta be at the field by 11am. Big breakfast about 7-8am, usually waffles or an omelette, and I will bring a candy bar and a bag of trail mix to the field. I get really antsy on rugby game days, and it's sometimes hard for me to eat a big meal 1st thing in the morning.

While some of the Irish lads on the team have been known to arrive at the field with a beer, or straight up drunk, my intestinal fortitude cannot withstand pre-game alcomahol.

I would have a little more carbs, a salad doesn't provide you with enough energy to run a 5K competetively.

+1, unless you ate right before you ran. Did you push yourself past the puke limit (notice I didn't say "too hard"...there no such thing). If you near-sprinted a 5k, I could see puking. Hell, I've puked a sprinted mile before.

For foods, a little protein, some simple sugars (think fruit) and plenty of complex carbs will be yo' ticket. Also, you're on a multi-vitamin, right? For longer runs a Glucosamin wouldn't be a bad idea.

I did not hurl during my run.

Rather, my stomach was upset and repeating (burping) lunch the whole time. I get a very anxious stomach when I train & play, and I'm interested to hear people's thoughts on what foods they eat, and when they eat relative to strenuous activities.

When I say I ran a 5k, I mean I went out jogging/running. I had finished lunch by 1:30pm, and was out running around 5 for a quick run. I do my regular route about 4 times a week at this point, around rugby training days. It's about 5k and has a long flight of cement stairs at the halfway point. I try to change pace several times during the run, working in bursts of sprinting here & there, especially at the end....

i thought training always included drinking beer (carbs) and performing your sport in preparation for "gameday"

FWIW, I'm interested in this as well. I'm still trying to dial in when and what I eat before a workout - seems pretty critical to whether it's successful or not.
