For the past 4 months all my rides have been in 35-55 degree weather. I ride 2-3x per week anywhere from 45 min to 2.5 hrs.
Last week the temps jumped up from 55 to 85 with nothing in between. My first ride in the warmer weather was 91 degrees. I suffered and felt nauseous the whole time. My HR was a consistant 20-25 beats higher than normal with the same effort. Evey ride since that one has been in 82+ degrees and has been really difficult.
Is there a time window for the body to adjust to the heat? Usually it gradually gets warmer here and I adjust naturally but not this year. I feel like I'm back at square one as far as my fitness goes and it doesn't make any sense to me.
Any suggestions or advise??
