Something that I’ve been scratching my head over recently -
Most things equal (sleep hours, training duration, even exact same ride), if I workout right after waking up, I will be EXHAUSTED for the rest of the day. If I do the same ride at night after work, I feel totally fine. Energized, even!
The only difference I can pinpoint (other than time of day, obviously), is that I will do the morning ride before eating and eat right after (usually peanut butter toast… mmmm), and the afternoon ride I will have eaten during the day. But can that really explain such a distinct difference?
Anyone else have this? I love knocking the rides out in the morning, but I’m not sure I can blend in as a zombie at work for much longer…
