Didn’t get a ton of sleep last night due to getting up early to give the wife her Mother’s Day gift, but felt ok. My head is stopped up again . . . it has to be diet. I was good yesterday until last night and had some fried stuff (catfish, some fries, etc.). I had a loose diet day. I am curious about how the high carbs will impact my ride today vs. doing one on mostly fat. I will aim to do my brick next weekend on mostly fat and very low carbs.
My ride today was great. Felt great, decent pace, etc. I went with a bottle of water and bottle with Nuun, and it seemed to work great. My quad was pretty tight during some of it, so I rolled it out well and iced it before bed.
