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.
I can carry my camera with me now.
