Hey All, I did some searching and couldn’t find any advice on this. I live in Seattle - so during the summer months I prefer to ride outside (sometimes TR workouts sometimes otherwise). However, these rides are usually after work, and will finish around 7/8pm.
What is your preferred method/advice for eating and cooling the body down post late ride so that sleep/HR is minimally affected?
I rode last night until 8pm. Normally I’m in bed around 8:30. consciously decided to eat a modest dinner at 4:30 and fueled the ride. Then immediately after the ride, dumped my remaining calories down the drain and didn’t eat anything else. Was a little warm when i got in bed at 8:45, but not so much so that I couldn’t cover myself up per normal, but AC had dropped the room temp to 71 already. Heartrate variability was on point. Heart rate dropped a little late, but it was stable the entire night.
