Good afternoon.

I took part in half marathon in a fasted state. Is it ok?

Good day!

In principle, I’m against “fasted running” (with the exception of light running exercise, 2-3 kilometers, before breakfast))).

If we say about such a distance as a half marathon on an empty stomach, I think it’s a deeply wrong approach that can do only harm. I won’t describe mechanisms of negative influence in detail but say it is connected with energy metabolism.

Heavy Legs. What to Do?

Good afternoon.

My legs feel heavy after 10 km running and it becomes harder and harder for me to continue running. In the result I literally drag my feet at the end of a half-marathon distance, what to do?
