No I'm not actually discussing a Date with Elvis, more of the agony inducing oh-shit-something-is-ripping-my-calf-off pain.
Now as most people would know, cramps can occur after exercise or during sleepy time when the muscles are trying to relax/repair.
What about getting cramps after a reasonably short bike ride when you're attempting to get back into form after a bad dose of 'flu? From perusing some cramp-themed reading material, it seems to be predominately based around exercise and training.
My questions at more concerned with a). can a dose of 'flu deplete sodium or potassium levels or b). basically screw up what moderate fitness levels you had before getting ill?
Or c). should I just HTFU, get on the wind trainer or gently turn the legs over?
