  • @7lenny7 & @MNLittleFinn Good luck with your races. I apologize, who else is racing this weekend? Wishing everyone the best.
  • :worried: It happens. I feel like that sometimes too. A lot more lately.
  • And that should be no problem. MP pace (since it takes you more than an hour to run one) is then way slower than lactate threshold pace, which means that you should be in the aerobic zone. Thus you're able to burn both fat and carbs the entire way through. I also assume that it takes you more than an hour to do a HM, which…
  • To flip it back again for the "fat adapted runners".... Why even bother to train to use fat as a fuel source if my body prefers sugar and can perform "better"? 1) There's more carbon atoms in a gram of fat than in a gram of glucose (sugar). Therefore, even though the process is more complicated to break it down into ATP,…
  • Because your body prefers to use carbs as the fuel source because the process to break down sugar into pyruvate in the glycolysis pathway which is then used by the Krebs Cycle to oxidize the acetyl-CoA to form ATP is much simpler than the process that breaks down fat lipids into the fatty acids and glycerol which then are…
  • A lot of good stuff here. I wanted to address the bolded part tho. There is a little more to it than just pace and heart rate for "fat based running". So at rest, your body prefers to use carbohydrates (or sugar) as a fuel source. But as carbohydrate stores are lowered, as long as you are within your aerobic zone, your…
  • Very good example of why you need to be very flexible in your training plans. Let your body dictate what you do for the day, not some piece of paper. Another lesson, learn to run with a good gait and always strive to maintain it. If your body is so weak (illness, injury, soreness, ect) that you cannot maintain a good…
  • If I may add to what @PastorVincent said. It's to keep you from running with the wrong kind of energy production all the time. Most people run a certain relatively fast pace till they are out of breath and struggle to stay "in that zone". That's not necessarily the correct way to run, at least not all the time. When you…
  • Da dah da dah dahhhhh ch ch ch ch ch ch..... lol Anyone else do this in their head?

  • I think I need to bump this in order for people to see it. This month's challenge got posted in "Fitness and Exercise". Next month it should return back in the Challenges area.

  • Thanks @garygse and @7lenny7 I will try to let everyone know how I did when I get to it. Early morning tomorrow. Have to drive 90 minutes from my place and get there before 7 am to get a parking spot and my bib. Race starts at 8 am.
