Shivering/Nausea After Hard Ride?
The trails are finally starting to clear of snow so I took off after work on Friday and went across town. Unfortunately there was still a lot of deep slush I had to power through and it was more exhausting than usual. For some reason, maybe because my legs were wet, I didn't realize I hadn't had anything substantial to drink since lunch. I picked up an iced smoothy but it didn't sit well and that night I ended up being unable to digest dinner. Got the heaves that night and had a bad chill.
Granted, it was 50 f. inside but for me that's usually not a problem. In fact when I work out during the day I usually sleep "hot"
Hit the trails again yesterday, had no particular weakness but got the shakes again last night. Had to take a hot shower at midnight to warm up.
Do you think this is just the effects of bad dehydration and muscle damage, or something worse?
