So, flat ride about 18 miler round trip. About a steady 18 mph pace. Do it weekly with a bunch of non riding workers and just sweep them up on the way back. On the way out, right calf seizes up and won't come out of pedal. Finally get it out and pedal one legged for about a mile, then not clipped in, then finally back in the pedal.
Couple miles later, left one seizes up so bad I can't move foot either up or down. Does this twice while I now pedal with right leg only until can get both back in the pedals.
Walking around I feel lumps in both calfs in almost the same spot.
Now I did put a new saddle on but am usually really good at getting fit right. Plenty hydrated, no odd foods.
Would a low saddle cause these? It felt a little low but nothing too bad. I have been sucking at stretching on a regular basis but was good over the weekend and last night. WTF???????
And don't call me old. I'm only 40 and 5 months old
