This might sound a bit strange, but maybe it does have relevance for more than a few cyclists.

I train really hard throughout the week and put in about 10 hours or so a week in the lead up to the Argus.

Problem is that at my age (38) and with the work pressures, I like to wind down the day with a toot or two..... (whiskey with water, or sometimes with coke light) and on weekends...after those LSD rides or a race, a couple of cold castles. (and finishing the day with a whiskey or two.)

So, my concern or question is, what extent does the alcohol or even the mixer (coke light) have an effect on my training program or overall performance. Note that I don't drink the day before a race or if really important race, two days.
