I'm very good

I've finally, after a few years of racing now, nailed my sports nutrition. I've now got 36 hours on the bike in 9 days with no bonking, no upset stomach, and still plenty of fire left to ride more. This is huge for me as stomach issues and bonks have constantly plagued me over the years. I've also steadily been dropping a few pounds of body fat and keeping and gaining muscle. Good stuff. I love going to school for something practical.

OK, time to drink a beer. :)

Funny, my post is the complete opposite of yours :-) You'll have to teach me all that you've learned while I'm down there.

See you soon!

Yes, 36 hours in 9 days must take some serious recovery skills. What's your secret?

I have to say I was a little apprehensive about loading up the hours like we have because of the potential to drain ourselves and then now be able to train much after, but the strategies have worked. Eat often, stretch well after and get lots of sleep.
