Fuel Your Workout? Or is Fasting and Exercise Better?

I don't have a lot of data here, but I certainly know that I have bonked plenty of times and not enjoyed skating at that moment. However, some research in the last couple of years with (not exactly) fasting has been interesting. I watched a BBC special with eebee about fasting on alternate days (named variously but lately called the 5:2 diet), but I never tried that. (Neither did I specifically try the high intensity training 3 x 20 mins per week that was in another special with the same BBC correspondent, Michael Mosley, but seriously, that's what my skating is like some weeks.) I tend to feel it's a great idea to have breakfast before and endurance event, and I guess the most often workable thing has been dried cranberries and oatmeal with enough water to undry the oatmeal and the cranberries. I also note they mention the only eat during 16 hours of the day idea I've heard lately.

So I mainly added this marker so we could comment on it. Any thoughts?
