You guessed it. Been on a very restricted diet the past few months. As long as I don't exercise, I'm fine. Throughout the week I had noticed that I wasn't feeling good after each ride. My pea brain hadn't made the connection until the day after my last ride. Decided to give myself a couple extra days to sort of restock. I will definitely be bringing something to eat with me on Monday.

Thanks. I appreciate the advice. Haven't been riding long and what is still a "hard" ride to me is 10-15 miles bucking 20+ mph winds.
