Adjusting my hydration and nutrition on the last bike ride
Monday, September 03, 2012
I like to experiment with things I learn. Saturday was no exception.
I was on a 78 mile hilly ride and there was SAG support so I thought I would try something else.
Breakfast - greek yoghurt, chia seeds, and almond butter (not a lot of carbs you noted)
One bottle on the bike was plan water and the other coconut water (I had refills in the SAG vehicle).
I had one GU Roctane every hr. (I did not have any more at home). GU Roctane has added amino acids in them - they still taste awful.
I felt really good afterwards. I am not sure I should have used more GU's or not.
Oh, did I tell you the ride had 3500 feet of climbing ... and I rode avg 15 mph and it was hot and humid.
