so the ref tells me im about 30 out of 60 and that 30 riders had abandoned. Needless to say I was shelled after a little over 20 miles out of 54, nothing in the tank. I was feeling good then suddenly I glycogen bonked. I could not produce anything for the remaining 30 miles so I just spun it out as much as possible. On the final hill I cramped so bad I could barely walk. It was clear I did not eat enough. I came to the ride with fresh legs just not prepared enough in the food department also not carb loading properly either.
My question would be what kind of recovery time do you think I would need after such a cannibalistic ride. I know its typically a few days but do you think I would need more after such abuse?
