Long rides have strange side effects
In the process of riding 153 miles on Saturday, I probably burned about 7,000 calories. I consumed about 3,000 on the bike. I ate a small breakfast before the ride and then a normal dinner when I returned home. Yesterday I ate a pretty typical amount of food but probably didn't drink enough water. I weighed myself on Friday morning and weighed 162.4 pounds. This morning (Monday) I weighed 168.8. Weird.
