So hearing on some of the podcasts about fueling (carbs) your workout and then taking recovery food (protein) afterwards.
I’m in middle of SSB mid 1
If i complete the workout and its not feeling too hard, i can safely assume I am sufficiently fueled and there is no reason i should have taken more carbs, correct? The only reason for specifically adding carbs would be if i am struggling with workouts?
However, how do i know if i am taking enough protein after a workout? Or does it even matter at this point when there is only 1 workout a week over 100TSS?
Do i need to worry about recovery after a 60/70/80 TSS workout? How do you know if you are doing it right - messing up fueling you know right away, but messing up recovery might only be apparent if after many weeks you aren’t improving your FTP and on top of that there could be other reasons anyway.
Just wondering if these generalizations about pre and post are correct…
