I'm clearly not nearly as fit as you and my running extends to refereeing my sons' soccer matches on weekends. My quads had been cramping up in the past afterwards but I can report that this weekend they were fine with just the normal aches of getting old rather than severe cramping.

I'm not 100% certain that the squats is what's doing it - like I said it may be some bizarre happenstance that it was raining cats and dogs when I last rode, but it does make sense and when I've felt my quads tightening up I've done some squats (just a little jump into the air and then focus on controlling the decelleration) and not had to think about it again for a while. I'm still pretty terrified of them cramping again so maybe I'm being oversensitive and the squat isn't necessary but I'm not taking any chances.

I'm due to ride in again tomorrow so will see how I go.
