Stumbled over this article, which mentions 3 Strategies for Low-Carb Work:
1) Skip the gels. Do your long runs (up to 20 miles) without ingesting carbs. Drink only water, or, if hyponatr emia is an issue due to large volumes of water, a low- or no-carb electrolyte replacement drink.
2) Wait to break your fast. Schedule two workouts per week before breakfast to be in a glycogen-depleted condition.
3) Do a depleted double. Exercise at 70-75 percent of maximum for 30 minutes to one hour without carbohydrate supplementation. Don't refuel primarily with carbs. Later in the day, do a second workout for one to three hours and include high-intensity work such as intervals.
I don't think the benefits for this are safe during 100 degree summertime heat... Thoughts?
