Today my workout was just a hair longer than four hours and forty minutes. According to my heart rate monitor and watch, I burned 3,623 calories. During that same time, I consumed 1,750 calories. (I had two bars, four gels and 76 ounces of liquid.)
How is it that I never felt hungry? Granted, about 45 minutes after I finished I thought that I might need to eat an entire side of beef but during the ride and short two-mile run afterward, I wasn’t hungry one bit.
