Why Bonking Sucks
Aside from the obvious reasons that bonking is bad is the fact that I become ungodly hungry after a long workout in which I bonk. I have no idea how many calories I consumed yesterday but it was a ton:
Fig Newtons (far too many), cheese sticks, Triscuits, turkey jerky, chocolate, a can of Hansen's kiwi-strawberry, a bottle of iced tea. And this was just for lunch.
For dinner I had two slices of homemade cheese pizza with gobs of ground buffalo on it, a leftover crack brownie from the tub my wife made for our Superbowl party, and two Skinny Cows (ice cream sandwich).
And I was still hungry. Only common sense (and it getting late) kept me from eating more.
