Hi, I'm pretty new to all this; been eating low-carb/quasi-PB for 2 weeks (>80gm/daily of carbs).
I've been taking 2 spinning classes per week for the past 10 months and I don't want to stop doing this.
But it's been a bit hard making through the session:
Monday I ate a banana ~45 min before the class. I did okay but petered out ~5 minutes for the class ended. I took a glutamine capsule with water after the session. No issues with recovery, muscle cramps or anything.
Wednesday I ate a good-sized handful of Sahale seasoned almonds instead of the banana. I did okay again, mostly made it through...it was a very intense session. This time, no glutamine with my water, and it was 1.5 hrs before I ate my PB dinner. I was so burned out/low-blood-sugary that I could barely function before my dinner, and even afterwards. I couldn't sleep through the night, and I woke up with a migraine. (THis sometimes happens after Spinning class when I get dehydrated or blood sugar too low).
How should I be eating/recovering from these intense workouts, so i don't feel like something the cat dragged in? I normally drink ~8 glasses of H2O on spinning days and these two days above were no different; this used to work in my pre low carb days?
thanks for any input
