I get them all the time. Well not really, but a week doesn't tend to go past without them appearing.

Generally it happens after a long run, but sometimes I get it after short runs too. It doesn't seem to effect me particularly. Does look very freaky if it is bad, like worms crawling under the skin :-)

I'm not convinced on the electrolyte bit, as on a long run I'll drink just under 2l of fluid, generally SIS electrolyte mix. I think it's something I am just prone to...

Also can be a sign of overworked muscles being used for pushing instead of landing (in running anyway).

Got something to say?

Are little spasms in the calf muscles - twitching - a sign of over training?
