Is it normal to get sore quads/thighs before finishing one run? I don't live around a big mountain resort, runs are fairly short, if you bomb them it's probably under 3 minutes max? maybe 5 on the longest one I've been on around here?
I tend to strive for technically correct riding, so I'm really using my knees to push out on a turn, then bending them up close to a near crouch between transitions (cross under)
The problem is, riding like this is really really tiring. I can still do fast turns without this much of conscious/extreme knee movement, or not really at all (skidded turns or carving)
what should I be doing? do whatever "feels" right or keep trying to use my knees as much as I'm doing now?
I sometimes exaggerate the cross under movement to the point it doesn't feel natural just to make sure I don't get into the habit of riding with static knees.
