While doing a SSB1 workout (Carson to be exact), I became very shaky and started sweating much more than normal close to the end of the workout. I felt like all the energy had left me and I was extremely hungry.
After the warm down I drank 1.75 servings (3 scoops) of Skratch’s Recovery Shake, I was thinking my body was probably super low on carbs and I needed to get something into my system. 1 hour later I’m still very hungry and I’m trying not to destroy a plate of cookies, but I’m not that interested in the chick fil a in front of me. I have questions:
- Is what I experienced on the bike similar to “the bonk”?
- Am I craving sugar right now because my glycogen stores have been depleted?
- I’m actually trying to control my sugar intake somewhat, so if my body is looking for more carbs (after 3 scoops of sugary recovery shake) what are some other options?
