Burning the Calories Before Refueling? Should we be Exercising in a Fasted State?

We've talked about the idea of bonk training before, and I don't claim to know a lot, but know I have done it. Often it was not "breakfast" time, but for various reasons it was still over 6 to 8 hours, sometimes more, since the previous meal. This might have been due to odd work hour schedules or preoccupation with all sorts of things, but sometimes I showed up at the park to skate in a fasted state.

Northinsouth Birthday Festivities Unclear But Good Wishes Certain

I wanted to post a birthday greeting to Northinsouth to say thanks for so many years of roadskating and dreaming we could do more than laps in our beloved Country Park and along the trail up to Bur-Mil. We set our sights on Tour to Tanglewood and Athens to Atlanta when we knew so little about what we were heading for.

Eleven Fluffy Reasons to Sort of Consider These Seven Dorky Sports: Inline Skating Beats Hula Hooping

OK I made the 11 number up, and it is just to mock all the titles on health.com and so many websites, including this one sometimes, ha!

Did I say dorky? Why yes, I did, but I only meant that this is how rowlurblayding (rollerblading for you search engines out there) is presented in the little media coverage we get (except maybe that for the Northshore Inline Marathon, which seems to get great, serious, fun stories each year).

Here's a little fluff mentioned on the Pegasus Flyers inline skating (roadskating) list:

Skating the Full Silver Comet and Chief Ladiga Trail Again: 94 Miles of Hot Fun in Georgia and Alabama

 

 

Driving down from North Carolina late at night, I asked eebee to post a note to the APRR (Atlanta Peachtree Road Rollers) list inviting people to join us for a long slow distance skate the next day, or perhaps the day after. We had earlier this year done our favorite 62-miler from Mile 0 near Nickajack Elementary School to mile 31 at Brushy Mountain Tunnel and back.

[I posted this (with minor edits) for ShabbatSam who is making his way to Canada as I type. If you found it here and decided to donate, please let ShabbatSam know RSN sent you. No we don't get anything but skateylove out of it if you mention us...and that's plenty. Congratulations in advance, ShabbatSam, for your effort. We have at least one Roadskater.net skater, SkateyMark, who will be intensely interested in your progress. --Roadskater]

Thanks to Jeremy at Greensboro Country Park and the Awesome AgriMetal Blower

I postponed some color madness and jersey decision and indecision for awhile in the hopes of some laps with pals at Country Park. On the way I realized that the party might be somewhat small in number, but that was OK, methought.
