Hey all, I've been really irritable post ride lately, down right cranky and very hard to live with. It usually lasts for 1 to 2 days. I hate the way I feel when this happens. I'm kind of spacey and really feel like I have no control of how I am acting at times. I'm not sure if part of it is because I'm dehydrated or not, but I have taken to weighing myself pre and post ride and am trying to replenish the amount of water I have lost. It usually is about a pound for a three hour ride. I don't know how long it takes to replenish this amount though. It seems like quite a lot of loss to me. I do however try to stay hydrated on the bike. I take in about 32 to 64 ounces of water for a ride like this then continue to sip through out the day. Because I am eating in between I don't know if I have actually consumed the whole amount. Sometimes I will also stop towards the end of my ride and get a bottle of Gator aid or orange juice and pour it into my bottle and drink that. Can someone please help? I don't know if I am depleting a mineral, or what else might be happening.
