Thank you all for your reply. I hadn’t mentioned coffee because i was taking it for granted, but yes, I usually have black coffee or black tea, without sugar of course before going on a fasted outing.

Great question, I was going to ask the same one. I will soon move from my transition period to the base period but will have a significant gap of 2 weeks soon after I start. I will be able to do some running and maybe hiking but probably not strength training. Then latter in may I’ll have another two weeks. But these shouldn’t be so bad as I’ll do some hiking during this second break.keloumat on February 20, 2018 at 2:18 am · in reply to: Fasted workouts, how long is too long? #8179
Just back from a nice fasted workout, 12K, 1h22 minutes on hilly ground at a nice pace well within my aerobic zone. I’ll gradually add more fasted workouts in the coming weeks in order to do most of them fasted, except for the longer ones, like what I did last spring.
Concerning food, I think you’re right Scott. When on a long day out hiking, I fond that if my breakfast is rich in proteins and fat dominant foods (usually porridge with semi-skimmed milk and chia seeds and a bit of sugar), I’ll take nuts in my pockets and don’t need to eat much else for most of the day appart from snacking on those. I’ll eat my sandwiches back at the car.keloumat on February 19, 2018 at 3:41 am · in reply to: Fasted workouts, how long is too long? #8162
Thank you for your replies. I’ll continue not to worry too much about doing fasted workouts for longer and gradually build up to go further. I suppose it is always safe to keep somethig to eat in case I start feeling ‘bonky’ at some point. What should I carry though? A gel or two, cereal bar, nuts?
Thank you Scott, this is helpful. You are confirming some of my thoughts. I had understood the need to have a lighter week regularly, but didn’t think it was so often.
I may do a bit of skiing but will replace it mainly by snowshoeing as I need 10 snowshoe outings of at least 5 hours for the list.
It is snowing at last on the Alps, so I’ll be able to go out in the snow at the end of next week.
