Topic - Going until empty

Mr Fuller on 18 Mar 2013
I've done a few long bouts of exercise over the last month that have, through bad planning of what I've been eating, left me completely wiped out. One was a climb on the Ben where I basically forgot to eat, one was a big yoga then circuits session where I hadn't got anything to eat, and yesterday was a 3 hour boulder session followed by a surprise 18 mile run. It used to take me days to recover from going to completely empty but I seem to be coping much better with it now.

So... is going to the point of bonk a way of training your body to adapt to this, and is it worth it (definitely doesn't feel like it...)? Is it mental or physical adaptation, or both?
