recently ive been developing what can only be described as excessive amounts of pleghm after riding for 2-3 hours.
it mainly attacks me when i stop riding, and i cough and splutter up phlegm for about half an hour before it declines. its really uncomfortable. the phlegm is clear, so i dont think i have any kind of infection.
ive only had this problem scince i moved to kent, never in cornwall.
has anyone else suffered from this? any remedy? i suspect it has somthing to do with heavy breathing in cold air, but i cant see how i would overcome this. im going to go to the doctor next week becuase its really begining to bother me.

Isn't it the same as skier's hack? - air drying your lungs out. Ahh don't really know.
Apparently if you breathe through a thin layer it traps some of water vapour allowing you to breathe it back in again (recycle it)... or something... Oh and breathe through your nose...

BMMF could be right, was for me, cut down on milk, though dairy products where the lactose has been "processed" like cheese or yoghurt are usually OK.... I used to cut out milk for four days leading up to an important event and just didin't worry about the phlegm when I was training or in smaller races.
