Why cyclists shouldn’t donate blood…

Originally posted to my blog on November 3: https://coachpav.com/cycling-training/why-cyclists-shouldnt-donate-blood/

This blog post focuses on why cyclists should avoid donating blood when training, and, if they have to, what they can do to limit damages done. For those who want to do both, I also offer some tips on being active in donating blood and improving cycling performance.

Let me know in the replies if you have ever donated blood while training and what that did to your performance.

I used to donate blood a lot. After starting to get serious with my cycling training, I stopped. It just became too hard to combine the two, obviously for the reasons you mentioned in the blog post, Pav!

I really like the advice on bartering with others though, so I’ll see if I can do that. Thanks!
