Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

There could be many reason why this could happen - a lack of blood flow to the leg, for example. Peripheral neuropathy can also cause this tingling - peripheral neuropathy is damage to the peripheral nerves. These are the nerves that connect your spinal cord to the rest of your body. Tingling, burning or pain down the legs can be a sign of nerve injury.

Do you recall injuring yourself at all, during your physical activities?

You can wait and see if this tingling stops on it's own or talk to your doctor. You may find it clears up on it's own but if it doesn't, your doctor can help.
