When the heat gets to you

Got overheated Saturday. Overheated big time. Too much time in the sun, too much dehydration from sweating, not enough liquids to replenish the body.

Heavy duty muscle cramps most of the night. Legs, arms, ankles, even hands. Continued even after downing several bottles of water and eating bananas.

Spent Sunday recovering, mostly sleeping, drinking lots more water, flushing out system.

Better now? God I hope so. Getting old is a bitch.
