Topic - Cramp

TheDrunkenBakers - on 17 Feb 2013
Had a great walk over Black Hill and one or two other spots in the Dark Peak yesterday and after about 10km of reasonably hard walking over very unpleasant terrain (tussocky/boggy/ice/snow) I got a really bad cramp in my left thigh/groan area. It was so painful it stopped me in my tracks. I managed to walk through it in the end although there was always a dull throb and threat of a return if I had to really stretch for a step.

This happens to me every time I go for a decent length walk with cramps in my thighs, hamstrings or calves. I'm generally fit otherwise so there must be something else at play.

What could be the reason and how can it be avoided?

Thanks

Richard
