I did my first road race today, 33 miles got dropped pretty hard but finished. I definitely haven't suffered that hard in my life and am totally going back for more.
My question is that after the race I felt pretty sick to my stomach, like it was flipping over. I felt on and off like that through the rest of the day and had some general aches and cramps in my lower chest. This has happened once before on a group ride that was a race pace ride. I age just a hammer bar before the race for breakfast since we woke up and started the race within about two hours, had a coffee and during the race had two bottles of heed.
Does this happen to any of you guys is it a result of the extreme pressure you're putting your legs and all the muscles in your lower body through? Just curious.
