ive got the long distance road ride bug at the minuete and am loving being on the bike for a good few hours.
am doing a 50 miler next week with the club so am lookin forward to that…
once the light nights are back im wanting to plan my first 100 miler. so am going to be looking at getting some good 50/60 milers in the winter. so how should i look at riding such a long distance for the first time, and training towards doing ‘a big in’ ?
also how do you find riding long distances, you done any big rides ?
great point there about not going out on ‘sleepy muscles’, nether realy thought of that
and i agree eating the right stuff allways help, also having a good breakfast. by chance i was flicking over channels and saw something on blue peter, they were doing a test, seeing the differances between someone who ate breakfast, and someone who didnt. memory test, reactoin, and a 400 metre running race. the results were as i expected, and the bloke who didnt eat breakfast was basicly crap compared to the one who did. so i allways eat porridge and a banna in the morning of a race, hard ride etc…………………..good old blue peter eh 😉 😆
yeh i also have 3 weatabix on normal mornings, and for super. then when training hard, or raceing have poridge, and also to give it some taste ad a dolip of choclate spread and mix it all in, to add some taste 😉
