I've started preparations for a road sportive later in the year when I'm hoping to do my first century ride. I've started tagging along with a road cycling group on training rides to try and get my average speed up and increase distance.
However, after the first few sessions I have been suffering with post ride IBS - During the ride I have been breathing out of every available orifice as I struggle to the keep the pace, so the workout is much harder than my usual rides.
I get mild IBS sometimes anyway - it's a dairy intolerance - but I don't eat dairy products anymore. I have been using SIS PSP22 during the rides and SIS Rego after, which is soya based. I tried the Torq stuff but it's based on skimmed milk and it doesn't have a good result with me.
Does anyone else get this and how do you prevent it? Is the bike setup causing it? Or is it a side effect of working hard and will ease in time?
