So I've been doing running 3 times on weeknights, alternating with riding short distances (~5-10mi) once or twice on weeknights, and one long distance (~40-50mi) on weekend.
I've noticed that after a day or two of running, I feel really weak on the bike. I realized my leg muscles are readjusting every time I run and then again when I ride. The calves get sleeker after the running, which makes them less powerful for riding.
Should I choose between one or the other? I know biathletes and triathletes do both, but I don't know how they do it.
Does this make sense to anyone, or is it just me?
