After some tips on managing lactic acid. So I’ve always liked all sports but never considered myself an athlete. Always in the middle with decent endurance. Diagnosed in 2011 at age 32. I initially stopped exercising, then gradually increased, testing a lot and eating fast/slow carbs. I’ve found the more I do, the fitter I get the less fast carbs I require. I took up cycling as I don’t like running and I can carry carbs, meter etc without it juggling about, plus you can stop for a brew and What does effect me though is going into the ‘red’. So if I cycle at 15mph I can sustain this all day and probably eat 5-10g fast and 15-20g slow per hour. If I step up to 18mph I’ll need 20g fast and 20g slow and with stops can go for a few hours. If I race (40-60mins) I ‘manage’ (I’m blowing now) 21mph (drafting) but can only sustain this for an hour. If I try sprinting I go into the red, legs lock with cramp, and it’s hard to recover. I’ve also had this on a 100+ mile sportive, at the 50mile point, and had to spin the rest of the way, wheel sucking and hardly pressing the pedals at all. So, is there anything I can do to stop or reduce this? Any tips to recover quicker when it does occur?
