I also find that if I ride a long distance on the weekend, the following day I take a walk. Works for me.
Hi Chief

Only been commuting since January (When the problem allows) and it's only a 7 mile round trip. any sort of rubbing during an episode only makes it worse, all I can do is sit down, try to relax and wait for it to subside.
