I notice that my glutes (or whatever muscle I’m partial sitting on) feel totally shot immediately after I finish a very hard seated effort (vo2max and above) that takes me near or to my limits. What’s the deal with that? They feel better after spinning lightly for ten minutes or so, but it would mean the end of a race for sure.
Am I pushing too many watts at too low of a cadence? Do I need to stretch more? Or do I need to work them some more to achieve balance? Or is that just how it goes when you go all out?
