I'm an accidental doper.
I rode a bit of a hilly route today ( the hills weren't long, but they were steep )My legs seemed to cope much better than usual, and they recovered very quickly, when I stopped ( again, a bit unusual ). I couldn't work out why they were working much better than usual ( I normally don't do hills, unless they're in the way). Then it dawned on me, I've been having some aggro with psoriasis / Excema, on my legs, due to riding in shitty winter conditions. The quacks prescribed me some cream / ointment, which is applied to the legs directly. On closer inspection, the ointment is quite a strong steroid :shock:. It works a bloody treat though .
