My carb of choice for pre-workout is spaghetti or any other type of pasta. I'm kind of boring so I just have the cooked pasta and a whey protein shake. I like this combo because it gives me plenty of energy without feeling full.
Sounds close to what I do, minus the pasta, Usually its a complex carb an hour out, if it gets near training time I might eat a handful of blueberries or a banana if i feel my body is lacking, usually its not much, and it sustains me for a good 1-2hr workout.
