View Full Version : Leg Cramp

I realize that I have not been able to ski as much as I usually do this year (avg. 1 per week) but I have been active (bicycling, hiking, swimming, helping kids with soccer). My problem is this, about two weeks ago maybe 30 seconds after I got up I got this cramp in the top of my thigh on my back leg. I never got any relief from it while on the ski. Once back in the boat it took 45 minutes for the muscle to relax. It stayed sore for a couple of days. This weekend the same thing. As soon as I felt it I got directly behind the boat and put all of my weight on my front foot. This relieved the pain. When I put pressure on my back leg the cramping would begin. I have never had ths problem before. I have not changed skis, bindings, speed, boat, body weight. What do you think is going on?

How's your flexibility? Do you stretch on a regular basis?
