1130 miles. Charlotte did fine. I think I’m suffering from dehydration. I had the worst leg cramps I ever had through most of last night. I was thinking I wasn’t going to be able to ride today. But, they seemed to go away around 2 am. I drank lots of liquids (and not beer) last night after checking into the hotel and all through the night. I had to keep getting up out of bed and tried to walk the cramps off. It helped a little, but not enough. I was even contemplating a trip to the emergency room. But I finally was able to sleep a couple of hours.
Needless to say, I drank a lot of fluids today. I found a little cubby hole place where I could keep a bottle of water on the bike, so that helped. I still feel exhausted and my legs ache, but not like last night. (I think it’s the muscles that were cramping overnight that ache now.) I guess we’ll see if I get those cramps again tonight. At least I don’t have to get up early tomorrow so I can sleep in.
Now I’m off to the airport here in St. Louis to retrieve my car which I left there Tuesday… expecting to be back Friday.
I should resume regular posting tomorrow.
Thanks for hanging in there while I was gone.
