When you get arm pump, do not pull over and rest. Keep riding, naturally you will be forced to use technique which takes the load off your arms. After sometime, if you don't crash, this positioning will become second nature.

I find arm pump a problem now that I only ride once/twice a month, but it is not a lack of fitness. Body position is the key.

Another note in aspirin - it is a blood thinner. It may increase your chances of superficial wounds bleeding more, but of increased concern is the potential for increased internal bleeding. Not a great idea if you take a hit on the head......
