I do find that a little. Alays figure it was related to training volume.

To most the marathon is the ultimate test of human endurance. To us it's just the cool down!

Pain is temporary - Quitting lasts forever

Regardless of how hard you train - The time is going to go by anyway so if you are going to throw a leg over your bike you may aswell bust you ass, make as many watts / do as many intervals as you can.

There is an increased need for minerals which can lead to an increased hunger signal. This isn't a bad thing as long as you keep the calories in check. Just focus on nutrient dense whole foods, and make sure your supplements are in check, especially iron, folate, B12, and vitC.
