My wife and I did a medium length over-night ride over this past weekend along a rail trail here near D.C. We only rode 45 miles daily, so this is obviously not a big deal compared to what a lot of you do on a daily basis. So please bear with me.
On the first day I mainly just sipped alternately on a bottle of water and a bottle of orange juice I felt good! I drank much more water than juice, and was able to refill at points along the way.
On the second day I ate a pop tart (along with the "sipping" plan above) and felt crappy! I assume I consumed too many calories and upset my stomach in one sitting.
On the third day I felt great on the juice and water regime again.
Anyone else had this happen? I'm starting to think that just sipping on juice is the key to keep my going during longer rides....
