Hi! Looking for a bit of training advice. Ive started my winter training to take part in some triathlons next year and as part of my training im trying block training. Here in lies the problem.....after a 35 min session on the bike then going into a easy paced run I get ridiculous cramp in my calfs and shins. My fitness feels fine but this is stopping me from training my running, I literally did half a mile tonight then had to walk back because it hurt so much. What can I do to prevent this? It happens when I just solely run as well time to time. Help! TIA
Thanks for the advice
The honest answer is no-one really knows why cramps are cause or the exact way in which to treat them. Chances are there are some very specific cardiovascular and neuromuscular peculiar to you that cause your cramps.

They are working on solution of ginger, chilli and cinnamon.... bizarre huh!?
