Tight hamstrings

thiscocksthiscocks Posts: 549
I have recently had a 'tight' feeling in both of my hamstrings for the last couple of days since I have been riding into work last week. It is not painfull but they feel tight and more tender to the touch than normal.

I have not done anything majorly different in terms of miles done last week but have been riding in the drops more. Would riding in the drops somehow cause this? I do stretch after rides, admitedly probably not concentrating on the hamstrings as much as back and upper leg stretches.

The only other reason I can think of is I did very little walking last week. So was either on the bike or sitting down. Would this possibly be a cause also?

Thanks for any help,
