Well, I’ve got some much needed down time today and am finally able to check in.
I’ve got some diet issues that I’m addressing (I was enjoying too much beef jerkey and nuts, it seems.) I have been elevating and icing my legs for the last 3 days and they weren’t getting better, so I had to get offroute today. I’ve been taking anti-inflammatory meds and also riding short days. The big mistake that I was making was too much protein and not enough carbs or water.
So, I just had a pasta/soda binge at pizza hut and then stocked up on lots of water and cookies/bars for the night. I’m staying at a hotel and doing the ice/elevation thing and am hoping to be back on tomorrow.
Thank you all for your awesome support and we’re still fighting! I also need to send out a SUPER SPECIAL “get well” to a SUPER SPECIAL CAROL ANN who had a bad bike wreck. I hope you feel better soon and I’ll be thinking of you out there.
Hopefully, my next update will be from a hundred miles down the road tomorrow afternoon – take care everyone and thanks for the good thoughts and lovin!
