    Done 2300 mile on bike in 138 efforts
    Done 220 mile run/racing in 67 efforts

    Last week my R hamstring went tight and stretching eased it, today my Left forced me to stop jogging.

    Is it too much time on the bike and not enough stretching? 1st time ever suffered with Hammie problems.

    PS I did have a professional bike fitting last January.

    Could be. I had a similar problem 10 years ago. I walked from Land's End ot John o'Groats, & was obviously pretty fit by the end of it. First time I went running afterwards, trying to get back into running again, I pulled a hamstring & was out of running for the rest of the year. Physio said it was because they had shortened with the intensive walking.

    Basically why cyclo-cross is such a tough discipline, if you're aiming to be in the top league.
    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!
