Is it a normal thing to toss your cookies on a harder or longer ride? Is it part of bonking or heat exhaustion? Is it bad to push yourself that hard? Any info will help.
not unless you are racing or just...cyclejim

love to kill yourself on a training ride. I mean, I can only correlate it to things like mtb racing, where I am on the verge of puking almost the entire race...that is, if I went hard enough. I would say generally that yes riding to the point of puking in a non racing situation is bad and pretty much useless except for the shock value of anyone who might happen to see ya! =)

go with it. I puked nearly every track meet in high school so my friends started feeding me starburst just to see the pretty colors.

This could be an indication of overtraining. If so, then you're not getting the benefit you should be getting. In other words, you are putting yourself through a lot of misery for very little gain.

Perhaps you should consider a heart rate monitor. If you do go that route, use it to gage your perceived effort so you know how hard to push yourself for maximum benefit. Don't chase the number on the monitor, listen to your body and let the monitor assist you in finding your optimal range.

In my experience (and this is the farthest thing from MEDICALLY verified), I puke early in the season, especially when it's hot and I'm taking fluids during a workout.

I think your body has to be trained to digest and process even the most basic of fluids during the course of a hard workout. I rarely experience the nasuea later in the season.

I only get nauseous if I wait too long to drink and then drink too much or if I drink Extran or Conquest. Be certain that whatever you drink is not a problem and drink before you start riding and again before you get thirsty.
