Okay so I have been speaking to a few people and reading some stuff on the internet but would like to gather a bit more information on a few topics, listed below.
1) Training in a carb depleted state. I'm not talking about a low carbo diet, but more specifically low carb loading for certain sessions. I.e. if running long on saturday morning having a carb light dinner on friday and running off of no breakfast, or running twice a day with no carbos in between. Has any been trying this training, any advice on pros / cons or methods to use?
2) I've been reading a little of l-caritine as a supplement to help burning fat, not that I need to lose any fat right now, but I understand this can encourage the use of fat as a energy system? Anyone using this supplementa, any benefits (even if only a placebo effect). I would be interested in hearing experiences.
3) Same again but for use of creatine.
A little more background, I'm looking at these supplements and training methods to help with marathon plus distance races.
All experiences of the above greatly received thanks.
