I take antihistamines daily. My doctor advised me to experiment with the dosage. Prescription is two daily, but by trial and error, I take one in the morning during pollen season and half of one in the morning at other times.Been pretty much off the bike for 3 weeks, moving apartments, packing, unpacking, selling, throwing things away. Concluding my job at my old company and getting a new slower paced job.
I did 1 ride from my old place to new one, had to move my bike...
Now I've a month+ of time off and I was planning to restart doing my base training with long rides. But, the weather is dumps, now last year this time I got myself a trainer, it's ok for 1-2hour rides max before my ass kills me and I can't continue. How do you manage to get motivation to ride outside in what I would call fairly shitty weather? Coming from sunny australia, it's either bone dry or a tropical storm.
I'm finding myself with lots of time now, new area to explore and find good roads to train, but no motivation to head out. How does everyone from the wet countries motivate themselves to head out in this weather?
Also another tidbit for allergy sufferers like me, allergy meds, especially more potent and at higher doses might ruin your workouts:
Sometimes I would take one at night if breathing was difficult. But since doing the sinus rinse I haven't needed it. For me the sinus rinse has been a game changer and I may be able to cut the antihistamines even more.
