I started an experiment a couple weeks ago based on an actual lab experiment – sugar water vs ubiquitous sports drink. I’ve been taking in anywhere from 75-100g/hr of liquid carbs and the effects are astounding. I know, “Duh!”, but going from thinking I was fueling with enough carbs to actually fueling with enough carbs…I fear no interval! No bonk in sight and the RPE is crazy low. Now if I could only go back and tell my racing twentysomething self to carb the F up!
Now back to your regularly scheduled isolation.
