After a few hours of trail maintenance, I was anxious to get out on a ride. We had a good crew, all of which were fit. One guy seemed like he had a motor on his bike, and I began to feel 40 as this 26 year old dropped me again and again.
We hit a rock section, when my body started sending me a message. My two middle fingers "cramped" and locked onto my bar grip. It took 5 min to work it loose. Then the cramp travelled to my elbow. It locked in a bent position for another five.
1o min later, the cramp moved to my chest. Then my legs. They locked straight. I became the whiny guy on the ride, looking to turn back at every chance.
We ended up getting 18 miles in, and were on the last climb when the body wouldn't respond. It quit on me. I had to walk it out.
I'm not happy, as I don't want to be the complainer on any ride.. This is the first time in my life that my body wouldn't respond. I don't know how to handle it.
It sucks getting old..
