Hi - Been riding 8 months now .. and for first time I'm feeling the delayed muscle soreness in my calves and to a lesser extent in outer hamstrings - almost the sides of my thighs as oppoesed to hamstrings proper.
My trainer has ramped up my 2 point exercises - and I've started doing much more initial cross rail work -- mostly still trotting.
I was wondering if now that my core is a little better, if the calf / hams soreness is good in that I'm working different muscles now, or is bad in that it means I'm doing something wrong.
Usually it was my quads and inner thighs that were always sore. Now my quads feel better. I feel things more now in my lower back (not bad - just muscles working), calves and sofetimes glutes
