    Toe cramp!

    Occasionally I get a nasty cramp, in the toe next to little toe, in my left foot as if its trying to pull itself up out of the socket! It typically happens if I have to unclip my left foot after a decent sustained effort.

    Any thoughts on why it happens, and any good stretches that can mitigate it? It does pass, but takes 10 mins or so, of hopping about and swearing.

    Stretching the muscles in the leg will help elevate the issue of cramp.

    Maybe your shoes are too tight.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    Shoes are fine I think, I generally have the boas quite loose... it happens very infrequently, but when it does its a pain!

    Happened this morning, after I'd done what would have been a blue riband commute. Then got stuck in traffic, had to unclip and faff at a junction, then got stuck with lots of dithery cars, toe started cramping. My immediate solution was to swear a lot.
