Default Anyone gone on a strenuous hike while on RFL?

Doing a really tough hike into the alpine tomorrow (6 hours altogether), first of the season, so waaay out of shape.. Just started RFL 4 days ago. Haven't been to the gym since starting RFL or indeed for the last year or so, but I'm an experienced hiker (if, like I say, out of condition), I'm 6'2" at 210, looking to get back to 200, maybe at 25% bf now?

I have some back-up emerg rations and can call 'cheat meal' if I run into trouble, but the plan is to be compliant (whey isolate pp and 1% milk).

Will let you know how it goes..

Used to do strenuous, all day, hikes, at 9000-12000 foot elevations, while on RFL.

When I wasn't fully glycogen depleted yet, I would pee like a race horse on Lasix. Otherwise, felt fine. Later in the diet, snacked on jerky and did fine.

Your results may vary.

Will there be a significant elevation change? If so, I'd recommend some carbs (make it a carb heavy cheat meal), especially if you are out of shape.

Higher elevation = less oxygen in each breath = less fatty acid oxidation = more reliance on carbs for fuel, which will be even more pronounced if you are out of shape.

It was socked in, so we did an alternate hike with little to no elevation gain..

But yeah, next time we try for it I will make sure it's a carb load day!

Elevation gain is approx. 3600 ft (2600-6200 ft) in 1.5 miles.

I've done many long hikes (15+ miles) whilst on RFL. Recovery is the hardest part but don't find the actual walks strenuous.

a 19 km hike with 2.5 km elevation change on RFL was mildly nausea inducing at times but perfectly doable. 20km hikes with little elevation changes are easy-peasy.

recovery takes longer, just as tellurium stated.

yeah, planned it out to be a semi eRFL kinda day. It was at least 9 miles. I took a gallon of the arizona diet iced tea and mixed in a buncha half salt in it and drank it througout. no nausea/dizziness/etc. From my previous experience low electrolytes screw me over pretty hard.
