During Tuesday night worlds last week I rode a normal ride with lots of high short power efforts culminating in a bunch sprint at the end. After the ride I spin home which is about 10 miles. During the spin my right glute started to get tender and then a few minutes later I started getting little zingers down my hamstring. After I got home, showered and finally to bed…no pain, no zingers. I’ve ridden every day since including a hard ride today with plenty of high power efforts and still feeling fine.
I’m assuming the piriformis just became inflamed a touch but, after decades of riding/training/racing I’ve never had this happen.
Just curious if this has happened to anyone else?
