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”.
This was the first time that we were at the lighthouse, when tours were being given. We didn’t go on a tour … perhaps one day.
The paved Karl Boyes Multi-Purpose National Recreation Trail makes a 13.5-mile loop in the park. We bicycled the entire trail. I had no doubts that Bob could bicycle the entire trail. I had doubts about myself making it all the way around. I made it, though. YAY me!
On our way home we stopped at Target, where I found a handlebar basket for my bicycle. Now I have the means to carry my camera, a wallet, or a picnic lunch.
