    one theme i've noticed recently, as i've started to do more intervals at higher power outputs, is that any soreness i get the day or two after is really concentrated in the hamstrings, especially the lower section just above the knee. the soreness has in fact made my realise how much i use the hams when riding.

    2 possibilities

    - because my intervals are done on my second bike, set up on the turbo, perhaps its set up slightly differently. in which case can anyone help me diagnose the problem based on the symptoms?

    - it's just something i need to go through, to develop higher power. i do wonder about this though, because generally i expect soreness in the quads if at all.
