Fueling Up For Hiking
I have been having trouble with stamina and fatigue on my hikes. But I figured out a way to help change that. I learned that you need 60g of simple carbohydrates as well as adequate salt and fluids. So, I make sure I eat throughout a hike. In just three hikes, I went from taking a long time and feeling almost sick at the end of a strenuous hike to beating the published book time by 35 minutes. That goes to show you that nutrition is VERY important.
