  • You should refrain from drinking coffee pre or post ride, caffeine is not your friend during workouts whether running or cycling.

    Palpitation? Anyway, salamat. I’ll try to avoid coffee for now as you suggested. Pero daming cyclists ang nagkakape after a ride. Minsan yan din kinakain ko pre-ride, oatmeal and banana tsaka peanut butter sandwich. Palagi ako may bananas na dala, hindi nga lang saba. Kung wala bumibili na lang ako along the way. Buko juice ok naman siguro ano? Madalas ako maghanap nyan after a ride. Yung tunay na buko juice.

    Si @evincar yung may nararamdamang pain. Yung sa kin, nung naka mtb pa ako, and pag matagal lang akong hindi nakaka-ride, either pulikat or yung pain sa side ng knees. Pero minsan after a day’s rest, kaya ko i-ride ulit same route without pain o pulikat, minsan may konting pain pa pero parang muscle pain lang ang dating na tipong habang tumatagal ang ride, nawawala o di mo na pansin. Parang kinakalawang at naninibago lang ulit ang katawan siguro. Sa rb di ko pa naman nararanasan yung pain sa side ng knees. Parang pupulikatin lang pag matagal di naka ride.

  • pasalamat lang talaga ko never ako pinulikat kahit nag tagaytay kami
    mahalaga rin talaga nutrition. tama saging , at hydrate always

    coffee negative ako dyan. purorot at aabutin ko hehehe
  • ^ Matindi yung pulikat magkabilang hita,sabay. Inabot na ako nyan, hehe. Mahirap siguro kung pulikatin ka habang naka clipless.

    About nutrition to each his own yan, currently I'm doing LowCarbIntermittentFasting and i do bike to work everyday yung pag out ko ng umaga ng 5am power pa rin yan eventhough naka fasting na ako ng 9 hours Lalo na pag nasa C5 na at yung uphill pa pineda, unli water lang and 2 shots of black coffee during the shift..

    Weekends

    5 hard boiled eggs + coffee for breakfast , during the ride water..water..water...baon chocolates for sugar rush..

  • ^ayos yan @ralph09 I've been keto since late 2016 to present. Madali magpapayat ang low carb plus endurance activities. Whole 2017 I was racing keto and fasted it can be done. Now a bit wiser I do things a bit different on raceday compared to all other days with regards to nutrition.

    caffeine/coffee - kailangan pa ba pagusapan yan. It's just coffee. If you get palpitations/heart racing/jittery because of it then you know what to do. Pero on race day a gu gel w/ caffeine is a lifesaver and can mean having completed your predicted performance or just mehh.

    5 hard-bolied eggs? Hindi ba masama yan? Kumakain ako nyan 2 a day or every other day, pero yung egg white lang.
  • Bike maintenance. For light cleaning, safe ba gamitin ang rubbing alcohol? Punas punas lang ng rag na may alcohol sa chainrings, cogs, exterior ng chain? Di ba makakasama? Sa disc rotors ng mtb ko lang ginagamit ang alcohol, pero may nabasa ako na ginamit ito sa chain. Na-curious ako kung pwede at safe nga.

  • I wonder if the alcohol would react badly to whatever lubrication you use on the chain.
  • Hindi naman siguro. Nag-e-evaporate naman kasi agad ang alcohol, kaya by the time na maglalagay ka na ng lube, tuyo na sya. And wala naman rin yatang naiiwang residue ang alcohol. Ti-nry ko kanina lang. Mas shiny yung chain compared sa kung dry rag lang. Tapos ginamitan ko ng dry toothbrush yung inner part ng chain bago ako nag apply ng lube. Tingnan natin tomorrow ano epekto.
  • 5 hard-bolied eggs? Hindi ba masama yan? Kumakain ako nyan 2 a day or every other day, pero yung egg white lang.


    Every year ata may iba't ibang update or study sa limit ng eggs per day and effects nito. Dati sabi 2 lang daw dahil sa mataas ang cholesterol. Pero more recently ok lang daw kahit madami. Based on more recent studies ok lang 5 eggs. Ako I would prefer hard boiled than fried.

    On using alcohol to clean your bike, hindi ba masyado matapang ang alcohol for the bike parts? Might cause corrosion. To be on the safe side use what GCN and GTN suggests when cleaning you bike, diluted dish washing liquid. Tapos rinse throughly, dry with cloth and lube the needed parts.
  • Hindi naman sana mag cause ng corrosion, na try ko pa naman. Sa exterior lang, hindi sa rollers. Punas punas lang, not as a substitute sa degreaser. Anyway, observe ko na lang. Pero sa disc brake ng mtb , palagi ko pinupunasan ng cotton balls na may alcohol with no bad effects.

    May strava ba tipidpc road, cyclo...?
