Recently I've been really slacking on my breakfast eating. It's hard for me to eat when I'm not hungry. But my metabolism has been burning hardcore with the cold weather. I think that maybe it's using up quite a bit more energy trying to keep me warm.
My solution is to get going early enough to eat a big breakfast of eggs and cereal or toast before I hit the road. The delicate balance, though, is to eat early enough that I don't feel like I have a stuffed belly through the ride. It takes me about a half hour to digest enough to feel good.
So the routine has changed yet again due to weather. It's just another nuance to riding year round. It's fun to learn new stuff again every season.
But I'm learning that eating a big breakfast does help a ton (duh). I just need to make the big commitment. How about you? What are your eating habits before the morning commute?
Get out there.
