I suspect it was just enough to deplete muscle glycogen stores.
Glycogen Biosynthesis; Glycogen Breakdown
“This allows the glycogen reserves to be shared among a larger group of working muscles.” Runners who are racing on a very flat course might consider occasionally varying their pace or stride length to mobilize unused glycogen stores.
Glycogen Metabolism Notes (Move to Outline here) ..
Martin also points out that nonworking muscles cannot transfer their glycogen reserves to working muscles; once glucose is inside a muscle cell, that’s where it stays until it’s metabolized.
what are the products of hydrolysis of glycogen
decided to investigate whether the addition of fat and protein to carbohydrate feedings inthe 24 hour post exercise period affects muscle glycogen storage.
Dehydration Synthesis and Hydrolysis – Practice …
could not show a difference in post exercise glycogen storage over 24 h when a high-carbohydrate diet was eaten as multiple small snacks or as large meals.
