Yesterday, I sat around with a bunch of guys, hashing out new curriculum for the upcoming Dealer season.
As far as I know, I was sound asleep at 3:30 am.
At 3:31am, I roused, slightly, and stretched. I don't know why I awoke, but the stretch was feeling good.
At 3:32am, I was snapped fully awake, as my left calf muscles contracted into a tight ball. Took about 5 minutes before it started to relax. Took another 15 before I could get back to sleep until my alarm went off at 4:45.
Why? I didn't do anything strenuous with my legs. I walked less than a usual day, and much less than a lawn mowing day, etc.
Just a charlie horse with no explanation.
I am assuming some of you get the same affliction once in a while. Does anyone have a "reason" ... or a way to keep them from happening. Before you mention it, I do eat bananas. Not always "one a day", but enough that potassium shouldn't be a problem.
