This is the time of year that I start to ramp up my volume on the bike and overall training. As a result of this increase, I start to deplete my electrolyte levels and I will get cramps in my legs during swims and sometimes at night when I'm sleeping. This can get pretty painful and frustrating. Last year I started to supplement with Standard Process Magnesium Lactate( I found that this really helped to alleviate my cramping issues. I still need to use salt sticks while I'm doing longer duration workouts. I have found that if I stay diligent on the magnesium and sodium intake that I can manage my cramping problems.
