If we decide to spend the night at the trail head and instead go for a store-bought protein bar and a piece of fruit, my boyfriend and I can always feel it. Same as with biking, if we stop for breakfast on route, (eggs, toast, hash, maybe some grilled veggies) it's always more difficult. It's crazy because we even noticed that it doesn't matter what you do the night before, or how bad you sleep, as cliche as it is, it's all about the breakfast.

Just a thought
I did notice that oatmeal for breakfast was making it worse! I figured that out just recently and have swithced to more simple carbs breakfast of fruit, juice etc
