Did my first century today... my longest ride to date. We did go out faster than i am used to because i was riding with 2 stronger riders.
about mile 35 i was sooooo nauseated (lasted on/off the rest of the ride). I was trying to get gatorade into me, but it just seemed to make things worse. Water in my mouth and over my head was all i could do to get by. (after stop at mile 42 only took water)
during the ride i drank at least 35-40 oz every 20 miles (the rest h2o poured over my helmet)
2 hours before race i ate 2 packages of oatmeal with peanut butter, strawberries and banannas in it
mile 17, 2 watermelon slices, handful of peanuts/mm's/rasins, 1/2 orange
mile 42 1/2 turkey wrap, BBQ sandwich, watermelon slice
mile 76 GU packet (cause i couldn't stomach anything) 3 licorish vines, and nother handful of peanut mix
mile 87, watermelon slice, 1/2 orange, 3 pretzel rods
Mile 90, GU
mile 100 gu
finished at mile 107
Any advise? i am wondering if it was early stages heat exhaustion? every stop i put cold wet rag on my head and neck.
