Has anyone experienced extreme sit bone pain after an indoor ride? I’m new to indoor training and signed up for Zwift a couple weeks ago. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it and had an 8.5 hour week last week where as my typical would be 4-5 hours outdoors. I did a race last night that was an hour long, and had a great performance, but didn’t once stand up to give my butt a break (was in the zone and dint want to get dropped ha). I could tell my butt was a little sore but no more than any other ride I’ve done at this point.
I stretched a little after as I felt a little tight, and about 20’ later it felt like I had high hamstring strains on both sides. I could only get into half the normal “prayer stretch” that I should be able to. Needless to say I think I overdid it. Looks like I could have potentially inflamed the bursa the covers the sitbones. I’ve never experienced this in the 5+ years of road biking I’ve done…
Has anyone else gone through this? I’m thinking I need to obviously take a break from the bike until things feel better, stand much more frequently, and probably worth looking into a saddle with a little more cushion like the Sella Italia Max Flight Gel. I’m currently using a 1st gen Kurt kinetic rock and roll trainer so I’m not locked into one position.
Any help would be much appreciated!!!
