New Handlebar Basket

This is the first time that I have been able to ride my bicycle since Sunday’s ride around Presque Isle.

Apparently I overdid Sunday’s bicycle ride.  About 4 hours after coming home from Presque Isle, a muscle spasm in my left inner thigh hit me hard, as I began to stand up from a sitting position.  I felt good when bicycling Sunday and afterward, while on our way home.  The bicycle trail was flat for the most part.  It was a low-impact, not a strenuous, ride.  We made a few rest stops during our ride.  I drank plenty of water before, during and after bicycling.  I don’t feel I lack potassium.  A banana is a frequent snack.

Why do I get these “muscle spasms”?  I want to be active.  My body seems to want something different.  This muscle spasm was the second one I had in a week’s time.  The first one was in my left inner thigh, after walking almost 15,000 steps.  The spasm, then, happened about 4 hours after coming home too.  I was sleeping, when that spasm hit. 

After a muscle spasms, it takes several days before I am able to relax (to not fear another muscle spasm will hit) and get back to my “normal”.

It feels good to ride again, with less pain.

I wanted to show you my new bicycle accessory.

My name is Linda. I am happily married to Bob, whom I married in September 1998. We have a daughter (my stepdaughter), who blessed Bob and me with twin granddaughters in May 2012. My interests include spending time with my family and friends, riding the motorcycle with my husband, bowling, bicycling, walking, attending festivals, photography and travel. I love taking photographs. I am a hobbyist photographer. My camera of choice is a mirrorless interchangeable lens Olympus camera. I love to travel as well. I lived in Germany for almost 3 years, while in the Army, and visited many European countries. I have toured Europe two additional times since returning stateside. I lived in Australia for 3 months. I vacationed in the Bahamas (Nassau) one time. I would like to see more of the U.S., as well as return to Europe. I wouldn’t mind seeing the world! FAVORITE MOVIES: I like all types of movies — comedy, romance, action, thriller and horror. FAVORITE MUSIC: My favorite type of music would have to be country, judging by the fact that my CD collection contains mostly country artists such as Alabama, Clint Black, Garth Brooks, George Strait and more. I like music by Green Day, 3 Doors Down, and Matchbox 20 too. FAVORITE BOOKS: I tend to read romance novels, although I enjoy a good horror every now and then. My favorite romance writers include Belva Plain, Nora Roberts, Nicholas Sparks, Danielle Steel, Robert James Waller, and Phyliss A. Whitney. My favorite horror writers are Stephen King and John Saul.
