tgif...getting wild and crazy
my version of a wild and crazy friday evening...powerade zero on ice!! today, i decided to ride inside even though the weather was fine outside. my reason: to not get anymore dehydrated than i already am since i have a long, long ride in the hills planned tomorrow. my doctor's office called me yesterday and said everything looked fine except my BUN and creatinine levels were higher than they should be, which to me, means i'm dehydrated. i knew that. i think i'm always in a state of slight dehydration and i really try my best to drink plenty of fluid all day long. i think it is a combination of sweating a lot and drinking too much caffeine in the form of coffee. i love my coffee and have no plans to give it up but i may cut back a little...just a little.
ended up doing 22 miles on the bike and drank all of my powerade zero and water. i still feel thirsty! maybe i need an IV? Noooooo! no more needles in my arm for as long as i can help it.
Tri-A-Licious who is running the Aflac IronGirl 15K in Clearwater, Florida tomorrow. and good luck to a bunch of you doing the Cherry Blossom 10 miler, also to Jeff @ Dangle the Carrot who is doing the Gateway to the Bay sprint triathlon tomorrow. can't wait to read everyone's race reports.
much love and peace out!
