I have a question about some discomfort I’ve been feeling later and it worries me. I’ve made an appointment with the doctor, but till I can see him I wanted to see if you experienced this. My quads are too sore and nothing seems to release them; especially the top front and the internal lower section (Rectus Femoris and Vastus Medialis).
I thought at first that I was overtraining, and took a week off, with some recreational short and low intensity rides and some short swims, but still the discomfort continues in both legs as soon as I run a few miles. I haven’t changed the intensity of my training abruptly, and I’ve been training for almost 2 years now. I don’t know what this could be related to other than work-related stress and bad rest.
Could that be simply overtraining and I should completely stop for a while? Or it could be something else? And if I had to stop completely, how long would it be a reasonable time?
Thank you everybody for your comments!!
