So you're trying to make your cardio not fasted? If so, I would say 130 is very ok for that. For burning muscle your total nutrition, in particular your post-run meal, is what'll make the greatest difference anyways.

You're not going to burn up muscle regardless. You're talking about burning a maximum of 300 calories running, as long as you're not in an extreme calorie deficit for days and weeks.

I like eating a little fruit about 30 minutes before running in the a.m. personally, preferably grapes, banana if none are on hand. Maybe you should give something like that a shot if you're looking for something of an energy boost that wont fill?

why would you eat a bunch before running?
are you trying to win a race or burn fat?
For me, the action IS the juice.

I like to run early to get the metabolism going, burn a little fat, and it just generally wakes me up for the day. I've been doing it for a while and I've lost fat and improved my wind for short term endurance, which is my goal. I like the results overall, and I've managed to maintain my overall weight. My real training is in the afternoon.
What has worried me is the other people I pass on the run (I assume running fasted as it is 7 AM) look emaciated as hell.
