After listening to many of the podcasts I have become a little confused about nutrition during training. If this has been answered please refer me to where but if not I have some questions.
Drink Mixes - Is it advised to have a drink mix anything under 60 minutes or even 90? For Vo2 (even some sweet-spot) workouts I like stuff like Skratch but I also don’t want to be taking it if my body doesn’t really need it. I did Phoenix of Saturday and noticed the workout text saying not to bother with a sport drink? What is everyone’s thoughts, experiences, literature?
Jells/Gummies - I know it is not worth it to use a gel or gummie for 60-90 minute workouts but anything over 90 do people use them? I am trying to get the most out of my workout, and the next but like mentioned before I am trying to avoid loading my body of sugars and such when it doesn’t technically need them.
Solid food (rice cakes) - Does anyone use solid food during their indoor rides? I usually just bring solid food on long(er) (2+ hours) rides outside but there are some long ones scheduled for me and was wondering if people treat their indoor rides like their outdoor?
