After short distance riding (<40 miles), I usually lose weight.
Bu,t after long distance riding (>75 miles), I usually gain weight and keep that weight remains up to 2 days and returns to original weight.
Recently, I rode 75 mile riding on Saturday and 150 mile riding on Monday.
Of cause, I drank and ate sufficiently during riding.
After first 75 mile riding, my weight increased 2 pounds.
After second 150 mile riding, my weight increased 3 pounds.
Today is Thursday, but my weight is not changed.
I usually do 1-2 hour aerobic workout + 1 hour weight training during weekdays.
I did same way in this week, but weight is still keeping, 5 pounds more than before.
I also checked body fat percentage and body fat amount.
Body fat percentage is decreased a little bit as my weight increases.
This keeps same level of body fat weight.
I keep 4-6% body fat percentage recently.
How can I interpret this?
Can I gain 5lb of muscle during 225 mile riding?
Is is just water increase in my body?
I usually do 100+ mile during weekends and see temporary weight increase, but it will return in 2-3 days.
