Some General Advice
06 Mar 2003
- Illness -
If you have a fever, completely rest until the temperature returns to a normal level. Then rest for 2 more days.
The same goes for symptoms such as a sore throat, diarrhea and vomitting (even if you experience these without a fever).
- Crashes -
Each crash may or may not have serious consequences.
It’s recommended that you go to a good osteologist and get a complete check up of your body to determine these consequences. Make sure you always wear your helmet when on the bike.
- Sores or Inflammations -
Do not ride your bike if you have sores on your lower limbs or spine.
It is better to consult with a specialist in these cases.
- Bad Weather -
Try to avoid Specific Training Sessions if the weather is cold or very rainy. Postpone the Session to another day of the week.
- Blood Check-Ups -
It’s useful to have a blood check-up approximately every 8 weeks, or if you notice chronic tiredness.
Here are some of the most recommendable check-ups:
· Iron (Sideremia) – Transferrin (TiBC)
· ALT, AST, CK
· Na, K, Ca, P, Mg.
For a proper evaluation, consult a physician.
