heavy post-ride sweating
I went on a hard, long training last weekend that was planned for 65 miles (100 km), but turned into a nearly 85-mile ride after a few of us took some wrong turns on the way back. That distance exceeds, by at least 25 miles, my previous longest ride. I ate and hydrated regularly during the ride, and that evening, I rehydrated, ate everything in sight, and made sure to go to bed a bit early.
A few hours later, my partner awoke me because I was drenched in sweat and the sheets were soaked so thoroughly that we had to change them. (The weather, room temperature, etc. were no different from the previous few days.) That hadn't happened to me before, so I wondered whether it's related to the intensity of my training ride earlier that day. Have any of you had similar experiences? I have another such ride tomorrow and want to know if this is going to be a regular post-ride experience to enjoy!
