Biking along

Another good day on the bike, I've finally figured out what works in terms of what I need to eat to stay fueled on the bike. Sometimes I get so caught up in the ride itself, the training and the hours spent that I forget about the fundamentals. I can still remember the advice a fellow biker once gave me when I first started out on this journey. "Eat before you're hungry, drink before you're thirsty." Wise words, but what I didn't take into account was the sheer amount of food that I'd be in-taking as these rides got longer. Stubbornly I continued eating the same amount of food. It just goes to show you that as the intensity increases, sometimes it's not enough to have the right attitude, you need the right fuel as well. Two Harry Potter movies down, five more to go! I sure hope that the weather turns a bit warmer before the last one is finished, otherwise I'll have to get back on the hunt again for some night lengthy films for my underground biking lair. Until next time!
