Does anybody have any tips on relieving/reducing the nausea & overall crappy feeling that can set in after a hard set of intervals?
I've been doing intervals on a trainer a couple mornings a week for the last month or so, and find that when I really come uncorked on the bike (ie, successful sessions), I am in bad shape - out of it & nauseous for an hour or so after the session, and it takes several hours to gradually start feeling better.
I realize that to some degree this is part of the deal with an intense workout, but I'm hoping I can tweak what and when I'm eating/drinking (and anything else I can do!) to lessen the after effects.
I am doing the intervals about 20 minutes after I get up in the morning; don't eat anything beforehand. I drink about a quart of water before & during the session, and more after. Today I ate a banana right after the session, and had a bigger breakfast a couple hours later, after I got to work (and my stomach was about 50% back to normal).
