IS IT TOO SOON TO CARBO LOAD FOR SATURDAY'S RIDE? It's tour season, and I'm as geeked up as the next guy. Saturdays are the days when I roll out with Phil and Paul playing Jiminy Cricket. I can't afford to fall flat or bonk.
Proper prep involves a lot of TV watching, website reading, social media fomoing. Which requires a lot of brain power. But, at the end of the day... well, it's the end of the day. I'll need sugar to keep the synapse snapping.
Then, we've got the actual night before. Friday night. Whatever carbs I've burned with the above activities combined with the immense concentration required to properly taper will have to be further counteracted and overloaded with even more sugar.
It's Monday night.
Too soon to crack open the pink cookies?
