I TOLD THE COACH, COACH I'VE BEEN CRAMPING A LOT. She thought about it, went down the usual check list: drinking plenty of water, electrolytes, etc. Yes, yes, yes, yes, I responded.
Try eating more celery.
Yep, more potassium than a banana. But, you'll have to eat a lot.
Not a problem for me. I love celery, and I really love celery with peanut butter. So, I've been celerying it up, gnawing through half a stalk a day. I think she's right... far fewer cramps off or on the bike.
Celery, celery the magical green
The more you eat the less you cramp
The less you cramp, the faster you spin
So skip your celery and let me win.
