Primal for about a yr+,28m, and typically am VLC. Calories on heavy workout days average 3000.
The issue is not having power to sprint during long rides. It's as if I can't get my muscles to push hard repeatedly or heart to hit high BPM. my body seems to just want to stay in a steady pace level.
For example last week on a 35mi ride with probably 10-12 sprints randomly, I could only hold on for the first 4-5 break outs. The lead pack was 15 people prob average speed of high 20s and sprints into the 30s.
I don't think its a lack of glycogen since I never bonk and feel as if I could ride for an unlimited amount of miles at a steady pace.
It's almost as if my muscles just don't have the fuel to do that many break outs one after another.
