My legs held up much better today, I didn't get any cramps until the end of the pulling set and they weren't severe. My shoulder muscles and triceps hit the wall at about the same time, so the end of the last set was not exactly fast.

    I've had some of the same problems with episodes of calf and hamstring cramps and concluded that the episodes were related to what other excersie i was (or perhaps wasn't) doing with my legs (weights, cycling, running). I haven't really figured out what is causal and what isn't. Also, driving off walls and use of fins sometimes seems to correlate with cramps. Usually i can kick the intensity down a notch, relax and swim through them, but sometimes i've had to stop. Typically a bout of cramps may last a few days but then retreats and im ok, which is why i think it's originating from something else i did before swimming and the stretchiness in swimming just sets it off.

    As you and Fort both mentioned, i throw Hammer of GU electrolyte tabs (and gel) into my water bottle especially when i spin before swimming and this has helped some, but not completely.
