recently I suffered an amazing double calf cramp while attmepting (ne: failing) to do a crawl-backstroke-crawl buoy turn.
Honesty the cramps hit each calf so hard I must have looked like the girl at the start of Jaws! (but less naked and I was sober)
Problem is it's now 40hrs on and my right calf still feels solid and I can't stand on Tip Toes.
Is this normal? anyone else had it?
It did happen after being in the water for about an hour. I was hydrated, I was wearing a 5mm wetsuit and I had stretched, water was about 17°C
