Since I picked up cycling a couple months ago and joined this forum, I've read some threads that have talked about hitting the "boink point". Today, I hit it. It happened at the 26.5 mile mark on a planned 30 mile route. I felt a wrenching in my gut and I wasn't sure if I could make another pedal. I stopped at the store and ate a snickers and a fruit drink. Got back on the bike and felt better about a mile or two down the road. finished the 30 miles and felt pretty good.
Did I do right? What can I do to keep from falling off the table like that again? I am training for a century in nine weeks, and plan on increasing my weekend rides for the next nine weeks.
