It happens to my husband also.....I wanted to know if there is a fix like two pair of socks and keep you eyes crossed and only wear Orange Panties! Heck I am willing to try anything to keep this from happening.
This is extremely common. As far as I know there isn't anything someone can do to stop it. I am a personal trainer. If one of my clients has this problem we usually find another piece of equipment for them to use to get their cardio in.
I flex my feet often instead of keeping them firmly planted, which helps keep the blood moving. Changing where and the angle they are at (turning toes more outward) also helps. I have tried putting them on the outside of the pedals like someone suggested, and while it doesn't help the feet much, it sure does work a new set of muscles!
