Well done Jon, sounds like some real type 3 fun…mind over matter.

I’ve had a few similar experiences (maybe not at such high temps) where my stomachs ability to take on food / liquid basically stopped leaving me in very dark places often hours from home. Unless you’ve experienced this state, I think it’s difficult to convey what this feels like when you’re in that very dark place.

Just a thought but do you think the type of food / liquid may have contributed to your ability to take on calories? I found ‘Feed Zone portables’ by Allen Lim & Biju Thomas a real eye opener to how our bodies work especially when they’re in stressed conditions.

These guys work with the TDF teams and their findings / food suggestions certainly make you consider what to take for longer days on the bike…especially in very hot weather.

Worth a read if nothing else!
