Published on April 28th 2018


Emma has got another commuter training session for you to help prepare for big sportives like the Maratona dles Dolomites. It's not immediately obvious how to prepare for endurance events when you're short on time. But the use of fasted training sessions can be really effective.

This helps your body to adapt to a fat burning metabolism which can help you when you take part in endurance events. In fact, fat burning is one of the components of endurance that a long ride can help you to train. But if you start out in your training ride already low on carbohydrate, you’ll get these fat metabolising adaptations in much less time! In fact, just 60-90 minutes is enough - perfect for fitting into a commute or pre work ride.
