Lactic build up.

I need some help. I was out training on my t.t. bike today for the first time this year and I found I was getting really bad lactic build up with no effort. I can ride around on my road bike all day long putting in big effort and not suffer with this problem but on t.t. bike its another story. Can anyone shed any light on what might be the problem. I was wondering if it's my position on the bike. HELP :(

    Doesn't lactic build-up become cramp if you can't disperse it from the muscle? Hurts like buggery :x
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
  • Might not be lactate build up if there was no real effort - might be position on bike, trapped nerve etc. If your TT bike position is radically different I would guess it was a tightness in your hips that caused the pain. Lactate build up is a result of hard efforts.
