so, i did this ride on friday, 65 miles. for me, thats a fairly long ride since coming back from injury a month ago. anyway, so I bonked pretty hard, but I still had an hour to an hour and half left of the ride left. I had to finish the ride, since I was out in the middle of nowhere. so I ate my powerbar and drank both of my bottles and refilled them at a gas station. I got home, creeping along at 14 mph or so. my hr was about 140, way higher then it should've been at that speed.
so anyway, when I got home, I knew that I should eat to recover from the bonk, but my stomach felt really full, stuffed even. but I shoved down some food, and went to bed at like 9:00 on a friday night. that night was awful. I felt like a was running a fever, my whole body felt hot, I had a headache, and my pulse was racing, probably 120bpm or so.
When I woke up though, I felt ok, no fever, but I felt like I was really full, my stomach felt stretched to the limit, and I felt really tired. The 1.5 mile ride to the grocery store was hellishly long feeling. I just couldnt force down hardly any food yesterday. I had a plate of eggs for breakfast, a bowl of cheerios for lunch, and some special K for dinner, and I went to bed early again, feeling kinda crappy.
This morning, I woke up, and I again had the "stuffed" feeling. I went to the dining hall to eat, because I knew that I needed to eat, but I couldn't get much down. half a bagel and half a pancake were all I had, just sort of picked at the other things. and again, I am tired as hell. I just dont get it.
I dont know what the hell is wrong with me. It kinda sounds like overtraining, since I have lost weight recently (intentionally) and I have no appetite, and I'm crazy tired...I just dont get it though, becuase on my ride on wednesday, I felt awesome, cruising at 20-21 mph with seemingly no effort.
anyway, any help is appreciated.
