Is it possible to train your body to become less affected by bonking?
I train (run and bike) in the winter time usually avoiding sugary products. Most of the time it is because I don't do as many long runs and rides in the winter and feel like they are not needed. But even when I do get to longer run and rides I still try and use just water. As I side effect I believe I am kind of getting my body used to 'bonking'. Is it just mental? Is that possible or am I insane? Am I doing more harm than good by limiting my carb intake during workouts? As long as I have a good recovery meal I should be fine no?
Any insight would be helpfull.
