A few of us in the club are planning an assault on next year's TdF Yorkshire stages, to be ridden on 6th/7th April this year. It's about 120 miles for each day, plus a 20 mile transfer between Harrogate and York (no coach transfer for us!).
Clearly, we'll be riding this a bit slower than the average Sunday ride to ensure we get round.
I've stepped up my riding to four times a week (about 10 hours), plus 1 or 2 gym sessions. I've also cut out the sugary treats and have dropped from 75kg to 71kg over about 4 months.
After a hard race or training session, you can help repair tired leg muscles by taking on protein, and For Goodness Shakes Recovery Drink is a very quick and easy way of doing it. As the name implies, this drink looks like a milkshake and tastes like a milkshake, and key ingredient is – you guessed it – milk, in the form of whey and casein.
Now 10 weeks post op, hideous fracture to distal radius and ulna. Really frustrated,itching to ride if only in the underground car park. Has anyone had a similiar experience and when did they start riding again? Patience wearing thin!
I fractured my tibia and fibula in one of those stupid 5mph falls from the bike November 10th. Clever, I know. I had an internal fixation the day after with the cast removed 4 weeks ago. I have been to the hospital today (20th Jan) and given the green light to start to weight bear and use the turbo with light gears.
I'm waiting for a physio appointment to come through which I am expecting to be soonish as everything has been from the hospital concerned so far (Royal Derby = fantastic service) , but until I get to see the physio I am a bit stuck in that I don't know how to walk!
This stuff is great – our favourite product in the ZipVit range. What you’re getting with the ZV3 recovery drink is an excellent blend of carbohydrate and protein, along with various vitamins and minerals, to improve your recovery after training and maintain your immune system.
A 70g serving provides you with 20g of protein – mostly in the form of whey protein – to promote muscle repair, and 43.2g of carbs – mostly in the form of easily digestible maltodextrin – to refuel your energy tanks, essentially.
