Hello, I’ve searched for and read a few threads about carb intake for workouts but something just dawned on me while listening to another podcast. I really don’t know why I’ve not considered this before as I listen to a lot of ‘sciencey’ podcasts.
So, in very simple terms, 1g of carb can yield 17kj of energy. Therefore, as long as you eat adequately between sessions you could complete sessions up to 2 hours with either very little or no carb intake during the session.
2 bottles with 60g carb in each yields over 2000kj, even my 2 hour Tallac +3 tomorrow is only 1332kj, surely given adequate intake prior to the session this could be done without in ride carb intake?
Am I missing something?
