I feel like I'm in a bit over my head. I've been reading all the posts and everything is making my head spin!
I'm 19. Female. 5'3" and I weigh about 150 lbs. I have a medium sized frame so people think I weigh about 135-140. I'm looking to lose a little weight and get toned.
Here's some more info:
I have sports induced asthma - I am hoping that with cycling I can get it to be a little bit more manegable - This is really important to me!
I can ride about 30 miles before I have any problems; however, I can't even run 2 minutes without having an attack. I'm pretty sure this means I need a new cardio workout. Any suggestions that will benefit me in and out of the saddle?
I usually ride 1-2 hours a day at a medium pace 10-12mph. My ride includes:hills, coasts, and flats. The weather is usually about 75-90 degrees and I drink about 2 liters of water. Is this too much water or not enough?
Should I be eating during these 1-2 hours rides?
Any other suggestions/input would be really amazing! I'm hoping that I will be strong/fit enough to do some travel riding or maybe even a race within the next year or two...
