MGCollins Posted July 5, 2015 Share Posted July 5, 2015 Hey All, I'm on day 30, of my whole 30. Yesterday I road an organized metric century. Stats for last years and this years are below: 7/4/15: Dist: 66.8 miles Total Time: 5:00 hrs MovingTime: 4:04 Avg Spd: 13.4 Avg Moving Spd: 16.4 7/4/14: Dist: 61.9 miles Total Time: 4:17 hrs MovingTime: 3:28 Avg Spd: 14.3 Avg Moving Spd: 17.8 After about 45 miles I really had no energy and by mile 50 I was starting to have some mild camping which got worse the longer I rode. At two points btw 58 and 66 miles I actually had to get off the bike and wak to try and stop the cramping. I don't think it was a lack of water, as there were three rest stops and I was drinking consistantly. The first 40 I was moving btw 18 and 20 pretty consistantly. After that point I slowed down to about 13 to 15. My time was noticably slower this year. The ride started at about 8:00 so I didn't have a lot of time to eat. I had a banana prior to the start of the ride. At each of the three rest stops I had a 1.5 bananas, 1/2 orange, and one of either a LaraBar or an RX bar. I also had two packets of sweet potato baby food throughout the ride. Finally my water had Elete electrolytes in them. Temps ranged from about 70 at start to maybe 80 at finish. While I was tired, the cramping was much more detrimental as every time I tried to speed up, the cramping started to get worse and I had to slow more. If I'm going to try and keep this up past day 30 (i.e. following the whole 30/paleo model), I need to be able to do long rides and not cramp (I have never experienced the level of cramping. I have two 100 mile rides coming up in the next 2 to 4 weeks and those rides will be 7 to 9 hours in duration. Any suggestions would be really appreciated.
