I had lots more cramps today, this was the third workout in a row . Yesterday I had a bottle of GU electrolyte drink but I never stopped to have any during the workout, so today I made sure to drink half a bottle before starting and downed the rest during the workout, but it didn't appear to make any difference.

    Did you ever get your electrolytes tested? I think I told you I was low on magnesium, potassium and sodium. Now, I get cramps less often, and I know they're probably from exertion. I also try to throw an emergen-C electrolyte package into my regular water during the day.

    Are you stretching the calves and feet?

    I did, but that was four months ago so I should probably do it again.

    I do stretch my feet and calves, but usually only just before workout so I should probably do it more often. Good idea about the Emergen-C, I will give that a try too.
