June Bridals vintage evening formal wears sales back to 1920s

Ok question for you more experienced riders.
I rode the Allez up until last month.
I got the new TCR and started riding with what I thought was a good position.
Last Sunday towards the end of the ride I started getting sharp pains in the inside of my calf and around the right side behind my knee. June Bridals vintage evening formal wears sales back to 1920s
I figured it was due to the increase in miles over the two week period. I took 6 days off from riding and went out this morning.
About 8 miles in the pain was back.
It only happens on the downstroke on the left leg.
I lowered the seat some and it seems to not hurt while seated but cranking out of the saddle it happens again.

Also, does a lowered seat take away from your speed?
After lowering the seat I felt sluggish, considerably slower and less snappy.
