milk: bad stuff for preride

One early morning, my brother and I decided to go and do some sprinting practice. We each had a small cup of milk beforehand, thinking that it was a good idea because the milk was a good source of protein. Well it is, but not in this situation. We went out and did five or six hard sprints, then started feeling lightheaded. We came home and decided that it was the milk that caused it, and went on to spend the next two hours in misery. Has anyone had an experience like this before, and do you know why it happens?

Milk is not only bad for pre-ride, it's bad for during ride, post-ride, and every moment in between the rides. Milk is just bad!

No, I almost always have cereal, milk and yogurt for breakfast before rides, and my after ride drink is either chocolate milk or a smoothie with some milk and yogurt in it.

Never had a problem.

Milk has mixed results with me thus I'd rather not risk having "issues" during any sort of ride.

Plenty of other protien sources out there.

No milk allowed for sprinting. I was fighting the asthma that ended my biking career for 10-years. Finally got it under control by cutting out all milk and wheat/gluten. Just say no to milk!

Milk are for baby cows! If you want milk, perhaps you might want to suck on a human tit instead....

Just get permission first, there's apparently some kind of law against it if you don't...

No problem here either. I milk the milk. Eggs too.

Some folks are less lactose tolerant than others. One's lactose tolerance decreases with age. I can no longer tolerate my normal dose of morning yogert before a ride. it makes me sluggish for an hour or more. Afterwards, no problem. Most of the worlds population is lactose intolerant.

I love milk. Especially chocolate milk, after a ride, I find it very tasty and replenishing. Nice and cold.

I just wish my 2 year old wasn't allergic (different than lactose intolerance). She can drink soy milk. It's okay, but it just ain't the same (and anyway, soy milk is for baby soybeans!).

But anyway, indeed, milk before a ride can be troublesome. It probably wasn't the milk that caused your problems, but having it in your stomach during a hard exertion doesn't help you any.

Cheap ice cream unblocks me.
