This is sort of a continuation of my previous thread. I have been riding for about 5 days now and I can ride for well over 100 meters with no worries and freemount. I am however finding myself doing PDs due to thigh exhaustion rather than balance. I still feel like I am not putting enough pressure on the saddle which may help the thighs. I am mainly looking for suggestions to help me “smooth” out my pedaling. I feel like I am “controlling” the pedals a lot which I also feel may be leading to my leg exhaustion. I am a pretty avid MTber and in very good shape and while I am sure the tiredness in the thigh muscles is normal it just seems like it shouldn’t be hitting me as quick as it is. It seems like I would get less tired if I could stop resisting the pedals as much as I am actually pedaling if that makes sense. I appreciate any advice anyone can offer. I am sure more time will also help but I am looking for ideas I can practice while I am out there practicing.
