Leg feeling stiff

AnonymousAnonymous Posts: 28,799
Hi.

My right leg is feeling stiff, this is the second day I havent done any cycling, yesterday resting today due to bad weather, anyway when ever I put pressure on my right leg the calf muscle like sort of siezes up and feel abit achy or something like in the middle of it.

Is it just from doing alot? Should I do an easy ride tommorow or should 2 days be enough to recover?

Thanks
Willz.

    take it easy bro.. Its best to be safe then sorry.. last thing you want to do is over train.. I would hate for your hard work to go down the drain. Just lay off the bike for a few days till your leg feels a bit better.. your not going to loose fitness in a few days so dont panic.

    have a read of the linky below and see if this relates to you

    Gentle stretches?
    Don't overdo them or anything but really gently stretching the painful muscles and see how that makes them feel, if it hurts when you stretch them ease off to prevent (further?) injury.
    Take tomorrow off as well for good measure

    Thanks.

    I'll check that link out.

    Forgot I might have about 6 miles to do tommorow, 3 mile round trip as I have something to do, so should I take it real easy and slow I guess?
