I did my first 36 hour fast in a while. From Monday evening to just now (about 10 am, Wednesday). It’s probably more like 37-38, but I like the concept of 36 hours.
I worked out 1 hour 14 minutes at about 32-33 hours. For whatever reason, working out fasted like this gives me a really good workout. One would think it wouldn’t, but my best workouts have been while fasting over a day.
I find these much harder to do now than when I started. 4+ years ago, I could do 2x36s/week, working out both times, no issues. Now, it’s all I can do to make it one 36 hour fast.
I did get slightly cold last night. I had to get up and switch from shorts to long pajama bottoms. I have restarted taking small amounts of Lugol’s iodine to see if this helps. It may have, though it’s always hard to tell. While I was warmer, I also ate more the day before to “feast”.
I’m not sure when my next fast will be. I have cataract surgery next week, and I won’t be allowed to exercise or lift more than 10 pounds for at least a week or maybe several. So, I’m trying to get in as many workouts as possible. For me, those make it MUCH harder to fast. I often can barely make OMAD the day after I workout. We’ll see how it goes.
