As opposed to weightlifting supplements...what are some good aids (if any) if you are starting an intense running program?

Firstly, with a few exceptions of course, I don't beleive there is such as thing as 'weight lifting supplements'. Suppliments can help you no matter what your goals, it's just a case of tweaking the numbers to suit your aim and activity.

I'm no expert and i'm sure if need be, someone else on the site will come in with a more scientific answer, but Creatine, if your not already taking it, is a great energy supplement.

So, in short, Creatine. I've always thought it would be good for runners and know people who play football (soccer) that take it with positive effects. Personally I think everyone should take it. I've also heard and read alot of 'experts' say that.
