Not to get confused with the POOP article, the brown stuff I’m talking about today would be the stuff you eat!
The other day I had some un-special brownies from my local 7/11 about 30 mins before my ride. I gotta tell you, those brownies must have had some special sugar or something, because I felt so strong through out the ride! Forget bars and gels, get brownies, besides they’re cheaper! Only $.99 at 7/11, better yet, you can make your own at home with a store bought box for less than $2!
Now if I can only convince Lady P to let me keep brownies around the house for “training” purposes…
Memorial Day is going to be busy for MtnBikeRiders.com. We’re hosting a ride at Whiting Ranch, in which we’re planning a route that takes us through 14 miles of grueling work. In order to prepare for this ride physically, I had to get some much needed fuel to power my legs for the following morning.
With that in mind, I wanted to make sure that I got enough calories in my body to last the whole ride. I sent a text message to my buddy Khoa in the afternoon to ask if he’d be interested in getting food to fuel up later on in the evening. He agreed.
We ended up driving to the world famous Pink’s Hot Dogs in Los Angeles, “the hot dog of the stars.”
Once we arrived, the line was pretty long. We stood in it for about 20-30 minutes before placing our order.That fantastic shirt I’m wearing is from Evomo, it’s called the RANGER.
Magic being made…
Here’s what we ordered. From left to right:10″ STRETCH CHILI DOG,BROOKLYN PASTRAMI – SWISS CHEESE DOG, GUADALAJARA DOG, and the CHICAGO POLISH DOG.
I know you’re wondering why or how a hot dog would be considered for a pre ride meal? Well the way I see it, it’s a perfect food. You have your proteins and carbs. You also get your green veggies to balance things out. Plus you get that “snap” when you bite into them…yum!
The only problem with I had with this perfect meal was the ass explosion that I experienced after eating those delicious dogs. However, it was totally worth it since I’ll be good and ready for the big ride tomorrow.
