I went for a ride a few days ago and forgot to fill my pockets with food.
I went hypoglycemic at 140km and had a Mars bar at 170k.
I then did another 70km feeling revitalised and stopped only cause the sun was setting.
Went to the shops afterwards and purchased heaps of food, got home had a nibble and realised I wasn't hungry
Can anyone make sense of why I wouldn't eat like a horse after the ride?
You don't get to eat much during races so I thought training without a substantial food intake would help prepare me for the strains of racing. Not sure it was the smartest thing to do.
exercise surpresses the apatite (poor spelling - hunger).
