On and Off Thigh Pain
I'm an "older" cyclist and am training for a Century in Utah in August. Several dyas ago, I did a 35 miler of which more than 25 is tough uphill grades. I just kept pluggin along the entire way, but it was a little tough. About halfway thru, my right thigh had some severe pain right on the top, primary thigh muscle. (not knee related, seat hight,etc.) after rubbing it for a bit, I contiued on and finished ok. However, today, on a long. easy ride, I had periods when it would hurt and then completely go away. When I am on flat or easy grades, I can spin along with absolutely not even a twinge in the thigh.
I would think that if it was strained, etc., I would feel something all the time!
