Try a banana or two as a mid afternoon snack for slow release energy.
Have you tried taking a sports drink with you on your longer runs?

I haven't tried any sports drinks as I have never fealt the need. Did try Red Bull before a 10k race in January and I actually think it made me go slower. Any suggestions on what drink to try?
I swear by Lucozade Sport and always carry a pouch or bottle on longer runs and even at races. All isotonic drinks differ in strength and flavour so you need to find one that suits you. What they all do though is give you a kick and help replace salt loss so they are better than water. If you can't find one that suits you make up some squash and try that.
