I don't really know a lot about endurance athletics, mainly because when I was in the Army we didn't care (nutrition was beer and whatever we felt like eating) and until recently I didn't do much endurance activities at all. Since getting back on a mountain bike, I have been thinking about endurance nutrition a lot more. Specifically what to eat during the event and for breakfast before the event.
Sunday's ride was really long and burned over 2500 calories. I had a couple protein bars and some mixed unsalted nuts with me along with 100oz of water in my camelback. I felt pretty ok for the most part, but towards the end I was deep in the pain cave and started to lose focus, next thing I knew I was out of water. Fortunately I was very close to the trail head and parking lot where my truck was parked and the water I had fortunately assumed I would want or need after the ride.
Right now I am not sure what to eat before & during rides like this for optimal performance, so I will do some research and reach out to some people that will know the answers.
