    Metabolism is the sum of all the chemical reactions taking place inside cells.
    A metabolic pathway is the series of enzyme-controlled reactions that make up a metabolic reaction. These reactions do not occur all at once, but in a series of steps in a controlled sequence; each step catalysed by a specific enzyme.

    It's both.

    Glycogenolysis is just the breakdown of glycogen - to form glucose.

    Glugoneogenisis is the formation of new glucose NOT from glycogen but from eamniated protein as well as fats
