Any tips to help stop lungs from burning during a hard CX race in the cold?
2 out of the last three races i had this feeling and the temps were only in the 45-50F range. It might get worse when it gets colder later in the season.
This is my first season racing CX but i’ve skied and snowboarded for many years before.
I think a sort of baklava/scarf might help. But with the the very hard efforts of a CX race the breathing might get harder if wearing one.
Are there any baklava/scarfs that have good breathability? Is there a way to train the lungs to handle these sort of efforts in the cold?
