As abounding of you apperceive that apperceive me, I accept struggled with 100 mile rides, my aboriginal two 100 mile rides accepting endure year in 2017.
My aboriginal attack was in February of 2017, I started off with a little bit of a abdomen ache, and was way overdressed and overheated quickly. I begin that I was not arresting abundant of annihilation and started to absolutely feel the pain. There were assorted times I capital to stop and alarm for a ride, but somehow with the aid of Coke and a pickle, I was able to accomplishment the ride. If I accustomed home I was clumsy to do anything, actual ailing feeling, dizzy, etc. I had to accept my babe run up to the abundance for pickles, amber milk, and a Coke! Afterwards about 20 account I was starting to appear aback and feel accustomed again. I don’t like activity like I am traveling to canyon out.
Fast advanced a few months to June of 2017. I had a few accompany ask me to do this 100 mile chase on a MTB alleged the Lumberjack. 100 afar and about 10,000 anxiety of climbing. I anon anticipation of the 100 mile ride I did in the bounce and anticipation it was a bad idea, but I absitively to try and alternation for it anyway. Long adventure short, I was accomplishing absolutely able-bodied in this race, on clip to breach the 8 hour mark by a lot, if all of a abrupt with about 10 afar to go I got a bifold leg cramp, one in anniversary adductor. I told my acquaintance I was benumbed with to go on afterwards me. I apparently should accept chock-full aggravating to accomplishment this chase and begin medical attention, but instead I apprenticed on for things to alone get worse. Just afterwards I formed through the cramps by traveling apathetic I had to pee absolutely bad. Wow, that was the affliction afire urine I accept anytime experienced, I never knew that you could pee razor blades! Somehow even afterwards that I approved to ride my bike, but started to get dizzy, ablaze headed, and ailing to my stomach. The activity of casual out was appropriate there and I had to administer myself to break just under. I absolved my bike up hills, thankfully I could bank decline and try for that sub 8 hour mark. I eventually finished, and did so still accepting beneath 8 hours, but I was in asperous shape. Way worse than the antecedent century, and I absolutely anticipation I was traveling to die. A assistant had brought over the evil-smelling being to accumulate me conscious, and thankfully I had my wife and accompany about who boring brought me aback to life.
I will get to the botheration in a second. I had arranged a ton of aliment and drink, bought a bag to go on my bike that captivated affluence of food. The botheration I bound found, I could not absorb aliment that I had to bite during a race, so yet again, I did not absorb abundant and had the better bang of my life. This was a huge acquirements lesson, and led me to anticipate of what I could do to accomplish it 100 afar and feel acceptable the accomplished time.
Thankfully on Sunday March 4th 2018 I was able to analysis out my plan for authoritative it. For me it was absolutely simple, while riding, and accepting dry mouth, I brought Ensure to absorb which formed like magic. Not alone did it replenish, but it accustomed me to abide to alcohol the sports alcohol and break hydrated. Afterwards the Ensure, my physique would commonly alpha to adios all the sports drink, so it was a abundant admixture for me. If we would stop for pee break I would eat a accretion bar with liquid, and we aswell chock-full for a quick candied potato fry bite to balance afore finishing up. Because of the aqueous food, I was able to ride the accomplished 105 afar afterwards any cramps, dizziness, or activity ailing to my stomach. I aswell acquainted abundant the accomplished time.
I am acquisitive that if you accept this problem, this band-aid will advice you! Thanks for account today, maybe this will cut down on your acquirements curve!
