I pushed my limits to 80 miles on the bike today, ride went well, i didn't bonk my lungs are a bit sore when i breathe deep, but this happened the first time i pushed myself and didn't happen again, so i figure this is something im going to have to deal with when i really push myself.
I tried some new foods on this ride, i shot for 250 per hour and ended up eating:
0:00-0:59- fig newton
1:00-1:59- cliff bar
2:00-2:59- shot blocks (to get in some sodium in my system and let the cliff bar digest)
3:00-3:59- fig newton
4:00-5:00- power bar
So in total I took in 1,175 calories (including the scoop of gatorade concentrate i put in my first bottle of water)
Energy wise I think this worked well and i thank all you guys for your advice, it might have been a bit much food but what i really noticed was how sick i felt after i ate the final power bar, I think i need to avoid consuming more than 2 type of energy foods, between the cliff bar, shot blocks and powerbar i felt really sick. I need to find some convenient conventional foods to bring. The fig bars and pretzels i eat work well, i was thinking maybe potatoes?
