Hey everyone thanks in advance!
Okay so whenever I bike I seem to be getting more pain/cramps/burning in my quads then I should be getting. It prevents me from riding longer then 5 miles in one ride. I ride then midway through my 5 mile trips it starts. My breathing seems strong (not panting or tiring out),my other leg muscles are fine (glutes/everything below the knee), and I stretch before riding. No pain or burning anywhere but my quads it is almost like a cramp but no actual spasming of the muscle. Not sure if it is because I only recently started cycling and my muscles are building / recovering / tender (2 weeks). Stretching after riding seems to make the sensation more pronounced. To sum it up it is only in my quads everything else feels good. The pain/sensations sticks with me all day until I sleep and recover. When I have this quad pain it seems like my legs will fatigue easily. Any ideas/wisdom/remedies for this type of pain. Should I be worried or is this sensation just with the territory and my body will should adjust?
The pain is in the front of my thigh slightly above the knee feels like it is a rather deep muscle that is being pained.
