Hey y’all, great product, great forum, great community.
I’ve heard on the podcast that carbohydrate intake is advised for workouts of high intensity of 60mins plus.
At what point does ‘high intensity’ begin?
I’ve just dragged myself through ‘Donner’ in week 2 of mid vol SSB2. Ftp 280watts, 4.3w/kilo. So these were 3 x 270-270w x 12 minute intervals.I had a decent sized bowl of porridge around 3 hours prior to the workout, was feeling fairly fresh, but I was really yearning for a gel, some energy drink, sweets, anything sugary to get me through the last interval. I resisted, but felt horrible. I generally try and avoid taking on carbohydrates unless the workout is vo2, anaerobic. But am I ‘allowed’ something delicious to get me through threshold workouts? I refuelled properly afterwards.
Any feedback would be great!!
