I'm trying to lose the last few lbs to reach my goal weight. To do this I'm trying to control the amount of calories i consume. It's a fine balance and today i got it slightly wrong as half way into the ride I began to get the dreaded tell tale signs of "the bonk", that feeling of not being quite there, of wobbly legs and inaccurate steering. Not as bad as I've experienced before and now i know what's happening i can back off the pedalling a bit, have a sip of sugary drink and conserve some of my dwindling energy. I know that I'm almost at the high point of the ride and it's mostly flat or downhill. tomorrow i need to eat a few more calories!
