The last 3 BIG rides I've attempted have ended in a DNF. In each of them I rode about 40-50 miles and called it a day due to GI issues. Not just a belly ache, so get that thought out of your head. It is more like purged innards. This has pretty much (maybe) ruined my preparation for my fall cycling events. I've ridden several rides around home of 50-60 miles with NO difficulty. So the question is why only the events. Nerves? Doubt it.
Since I have no idea what the problem is, I'm thinking about just riding for fun. Keeping the distances >80 miles or so (MAYBE, haha). I'm sure I'll be tempted to do some real distance. Truth is I know what I want to do but may need to get in the game mentally.
