Okay so I have been 'inspired' and am now training to tackle some sportives next year. However whenever I get over about an hour on the bike or 45km I start getting pains. I have a sore small of the back and my right big toe goes numb or gets pins. I know I am just breaking myself in and am trying yoga and shifting position to help.
But here's the real question; what sort of regular pain killer is best to relieve the ache and pains of distance cycling. Aspirin, paracetemol, ibuprofin? I know they all have subtly different effects.
I don't want to be knocking them back every time I go out but I need to go further and faster and it is tough going sometimes. Up to 66km in 2h10. 100miles seems a long way away.
