Hi Amanda

I think I know what you are getting at, but I just want to clarify the question - what do you mean by "Burn"? Do you mean how do they burn fat and carbohydrates for energy, or do you mean why do they burn when you are tired and you feel that pain in the muscles? I just need you to clarify that question so that I can answer it properly
