I'll admit I am not the most dedicated athlete. But I heard once that you should carbo-load before a race. I also heard that carbos are sugars. Ergo, I decided to pass off my double-fisted foray into French pastries today as just another training technique.

I don't think my body is buying it, since it is about ready to fall asleep. Maybe the carbos will translate into energy by Saturday!

I would have to agree with your body, pastries aren't really the carbs I would load up on. Sugars are broken down too fast. Complex carbs take longer to break down and give you energy over time. It is also better to slowly build your carb intake before the race and not all in one sitting. I hope this helps with your training.
