Hello from South Korea. As a time crunched cyclist who even doesn’t have time for weekend cycling, TR seems a lot of help to me. Even my thigh got bulked up during this base phase. Thanks a lot TR and those who share great information in this forum.
Currently I’m in my 4th week of SSB LV2(after ssb lv1). Due to my life things, I trained mary austin -1 today which was scheduled yesterday. I heard mary austin is pretty hard, but I took rest two days so I was quite confident about accomplishing the workout.
Well, failed just after interval 5. I got only one interval left!! but failed… because of right abdomen pain. It became so bad as my interval 5 progresses. Last step I even loose pedal few times, and as soon as I reach rest cave between interval 5 and 6, I have to stop.
I found one article that it might due to food processing problem within intestines
I actually eat some soft bread(red bean dip inside… what should I call this in English?) between interval 2 and 3, afraid of lack of energy. Eat one sports dextrose tablet between interval 4 and 5. I used dextrose tablet many times and experienced no problem. Also after workout, huge gases expelled out of me, so suspect bread to be blame. Am I right?
If that was the case, was eat during workout too much concern? (I don’t live in english culture so my sentence might feel odd… sorry about that) Just dinner 2 hour prior to workout might be enough? Hope to learn some knowledge to avoid this right abdomen pain because without this pain, I might have got this today…
