Two Training Questions
Just some quick ones for you fellow forum members...
1) Does anyone use their power meter to pace how much they eat during a ride (the KJ/Calorie indicator thing), like a bar every 800 calories or a gel every 400 or something. Or do most of you just take the 1 gel/xx Minutes mantra that is on most energy fuel?
2) Pacing on longer (3+ hour rides), lets say you're looking to do 3 hours of Endurance Miles or something, do you start out below what you want your average to be and work up as the workout goes on (like pacing for a 40 km TT), start at the average and just hold it steady the hold time, or start harder and fade a little bit as the ride goes on (ala Waterrocket's pacing for a 1 minute max effort but much longer of course with no 1200 w sprint
Thanks for your help,
