oat meal and water. Get your form down, your core is weak, try focusing on keeping your lower back tight like you would if you were about to squat or deadlift. What I try to do is just keep my abs strong, or make sure im keeping my posture perfect.

What helped me during those last sets when it really hurt was conciously pulling my knees up and keeping good running form. You get sloppy/tired by then and you lose form.

I think you guys are overplaying the nutrition card here, its probly his form breakdown. Hes a big guy, I know the struggle.

just always make sure to keep it loose when you're resting. here some good stretches for before you start running.

Why 55 yard dashes? Why not 50,or 60,or for that matter-40's????
