Fuel Your Workout? Or is Fasting and Exercise Better?

I don't have a lot of data here, but I certainly know that I have bonked plenty of times and not enjoyed skating at that moment. However, some research in the last couple of years with (not exactly) fasting has been interesting. I watched a BBC special with eebee about fasting on alternate days (named variously but lately called the 5:2 diet), but I never tried that. (Neither did I specifically try the high intensity training 3 x 20 mins per week that was in another special with the same BBC correspondent, Michael Mosley, but seriously, that's what my skating is like some weeks.) I tend to feel it's a great idea to have breakfast before and endurance event, and I guess the most often workable thing has been dried cranberries and oatmeal with enough water to undry the oatmeal and the cranberries. I also note they mention the only eat during 16 hours of the day idea I've heard lately.

So I mainly added this marker so we could comment on it. Any thoughts?

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.

Peace and Slimness Without Diets

Twenty years ago you may have seen the book with the catchy title "Dieting Makes You Fat", by Geoffrey Cannon and Hetty Einzig. Even though I was a skinny child and have never been morbidly obese, or even just obese, I have subjected myself and my loved ones to dieting hell.
