Training for my first HIM @ steelhead in 2 months. Getting into the longer 3,4, and 5 hour bikes. Most of these have been indoor due to weather.
How do you determine what type of bonk you hit? too fast a pace, not enough endurance, bad nutrition?
I normally stop to pee every 2ish hours so I assume I am getting enough hydration. I put nuun tabs in my water and my go to is cliff bars, raisins, and Gu. I had no stomach issues with these items during my marathons so I stuck with them.
I hit the last 45 minutes of my 3 hour ride on Saturday and just felt spent. I muscled through it and kept cadence up, but man I was tired. Trying to iron out all those kinks before race day.
