I take my BP.
I ride my bike around 21 miles, yesterday my BP was 80/60.After taking my BP, my husband told me to I drink a lot of water,. its a sign of dehydration. Once I took a shower and drank 16 oz of water it went back up to 114/72.
I always have water, however I ran out yesterday. Ive been reading about this today. It can be a negative if you get lower than 90/60.
