Shoulder Pain on Long Rides

Comments
By Peg Labiuk | March 22, 2013
Can you tell me how to avoid shoulder pain while riding, especially longer rides? The pain is normally between my shoulder blades and sometimes really burns. I've been fitted for my bike and have been told I have a good riding posture/form. I'm relaxed and don't seem to be tensed....

Recovery

Recovery for a Multi-Event Day

Comments
By Peg Labiuk | March 08, 2013
Back in May you wrote about using cold water and ice for recovery after a hard ride. That tip really helped me this summer. Taking that a step further, should I use this cold recovery method for a multi-event day? In other words, if I have two competitions a few hours apart (like time trials) should I use ice therapy in between for recovery? Or, should I just stretch and stay loose?...

Sauna: Good or Bad for Recovery?

Comments
By Peg Labiuk | March 01, 2013
A couple of years ago I emailed in a query concerning hot tubbing after exercise classes or cycling. Your answer was hot tubbing is for socializing not recovery. Now I am wondering about the Sauna or the Steam Room. Would they fall into the same category as the hot tub? Have athletes used them to any advantage? Your thoughts?...

Climbing With Asthma

Comments
By Peg Labiuk | January 21, 2013
I have diminished lung capacity due to childhood asthma. It isn't a problem most of the time, but I really feel it on the hills and need a few minutes of recovery after each climb. What advice do you have to help build hill stamina? Should I do more hills, interval hills? I feel like my lungs are holding the rest of my body back! I've used inhalers but find that just makes me shaky with exceedingly dry mouth....

Loss of Motivation

Comments
By Peg Labiuk | January 09, 2013
Lately, I've been so lazy about training, riding, going hard, etc... I've really backed off hard, multi-day training. I commute to work 20 miles, 5 days a week, ride long (70 to 100) on Saturdays, take Sunday off and normally do hard training on Tuesdays. Love my team and my cycling buddies, but any hard training rides really don't excite me lately. Even though I still feel strong, I have to force myself to ride. I can't seem to get motivated. ...
