Little Victories/ Sunday Ride
The Wife and I made it to SART in Anaheim for the second week in a row. Last week we managed 17.2 miles on a first try with me facing major cramps and having certain hills defeat me. It took 4 days for me to stop hobbling and walk normal. I took the advice from another post here and worked on diet issues while taking Potassium to try and prevent cramps. Also got in some cycling time during the week for once.
This week, we made 22.2 miles (she made 22.4...just because) with minor cramps that rode out, and without nearly the exhaustion of last week. I could even walk today! The Wife was hit harder and has slept much trying to recover. Photos were at the half way point, where I was trying to not look like I wanted to fall over...;<>!
While I would have liked to made 25 miles, my better judgement said "Stop while you are ahead and don't over-do it!".
