Passed some friends so I turned around and extended my ride.

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).

Bruiser;

Perhaps you were riding at a moderate enough pace to remain mostly in your fat burning zone, thus sparing glycogen. I find that when my glycogen stores are depleted, I am ravenously hungry.
