Been zwifting since December doing free rides and longer distances and never had cramp.
Started doing races now my calf muscles are cramping about half way through each race.
I have a couple of questions:
- Do you power through it? Will you injure yourself if you don’t stop to stretch your legs? Last night I stopped, got off the bike, stretched and got back on.
- Are there any common reasons? I stretch before my ride, so wondering if position of seat etc would make any difference? I’m certainly pushing to the max in a race which I don’t do on a free ride so it explains why it’s happening but looking for methods to prevent it from happening?
