Default SoCal heat and a friendly biker

Big thank you to the cyclist I met on the Santa Ana River trail on Fri! I was as hydrated as I could be pre-skate and carried a pint of h2o for my 12 mile mid-day skate (this was on the verge of stupid for many reasons). Heat was intense, no shade except for one overpass at around mile 2, no obvious places to get water .

I stopped to turn back at mile 6 having run out of h2o, and the cyclist that had been following for a couple of miles also stopped to talk. He had an extra water bottle and gave me a refill. The effect was probably psychological, (I've heard that water takes a good 20mins to get into your system (?)) , but it still helped a lot.

I figure any one of us would have done the same, but it's still nice to be on the receiving end of that kind of kindness!

The heat was such that it was actually easier to skate harder and make some breeze, than to do slow, tired skating! I felt myself starting to overheat if I dropped below 10mph or so.

Next time i'll carry a pint for every 6 miles preferably iced!

glad you got out OK... SoCal can be tough! How was air quality? When I lived out there I worked near the trail and could ride my bike to the beach for lunch. Almost went off the side and into the "river" a couple times because of gawking at the pretty girls.

as a semi pro cyclist we strive for 28oz of water in take per hour. that is the average that a body can re-absorb during exercise.

even with that i can be 4-7 pounds lighter at the end of a 5 hour ride in just body fluid. it comes back in time after the ride when i drink, but i don't feel better until i get closer to the weight i left the ride with

try weighing yourself before and after on a hot day. you will be surprised. it's all body fluid loss.

most of MY weight loss is from all the BS I spew at others in the parking lot after my skate!
