i'm normally a calorie counter.. the best advice given to me before i did my first century: don't worry about calories.... EAT! well.. i did! at each rest stop (it was an organized century) and i brought along the trail mix to eat on the bike if i wanted it! when i finished that century... i coulda gone longer.... further! i attribute it to eating (well... and having ridden before the ride.. but you know what i mean!)

i also use the rest stops as mini goals... ok... x amount of miles til the next food stop!
