CROTCHY PAIN...
After reading about all of Marcy's crotchy related problem, I never thought I would be the next target... YES, the bike is evil for me. After Monday's 50K ride, things were sensitive but nothing too too bad.... Then Tuesday was a 2 mile run, Wednesday was a brick workout 30/20 total 12K ride and 2 mile run. But it's really Thursday that killed me.... Our community pool has been close since the end of August and I've found no replacement close by. And with 1 week to go before my final tri of the season I felt like I needed a pool workout.

I thought: "hey I have to be downtown tomorrow for an event, so I'll just take Granny out of the garbage bin, stopped at the pool and made it to the exhibit, plus bike back home". Total 35K ride. Not bad, or so I thought.

Right.... Freakin. Bad. Idea. The streets in Montreal are like Beyrouth. I swear to god, it was THAT bad. So, my brilliant training idea became a nightmare. I made it to the pool in one piece but crotchy already started to hurt. The saddle on Granny is killing my private parts...

So, got to the pool, swam 1500 m. Practiced bi-lateral breathing. Felt pretty happy about myself and almost forgot I had to go back on Granny. Sigh. The ride home was the most painful thing ever. I HATE GRANNY!!

2 days later and I'm still suffering the repercussions of this bike ride. Plus, I'm sick with a stomach bug. Great. Hopefully crotch pain will be gone for my double header next week....

So.... Marcy do you put a cream down there or smth?! LOL

Nice rides and swim - but what a price to pay. Dayyyummm girl, sorry to hear the crotch-ular pain. Hope the hoo hoo feels better soon.

Oh no! Hope you are back to 100% soon!

Marcy said...

ROFLMAO! I am so sorry chica! So sorry. But I've never had that type of crotch pain, just running related crotch pain LOL. Hump your foam roller and some ice down there?

Hump you roller, LOL... Get some Butt butter, it might help.

Geesh! Sorry, this is just toooo funny! What the heck are you suppose to do for that problem! Hope you are better soon!

Hump your foam roller!?! Hilarious!

Hope your hoo-hoo and your tummy feel better soon :)

Oh no, not crotch pain!! Ow! It could be the seat, or were you wearing padded shorts? If your *ahem* bits are used to your new saddle it could just be the change in saddle that caused the issue. Regardless, I hope things feel better in time for the next race!

Eep! Not exactly what I wanted to read as I contemplate purchasing my first bike in about 15 years!

I wish your crotch a speedy recovery!!

J~Mom said...

Ouch! I hope you feel better soon!!

I think it's funny you yelled "I HATE GRANNY!" I don't know why, but it made me chuckle.

I know I have to use a padded saddle cover AND padded pants. My crotch still hurts, but it's not as bad as when I didn't have a cover. Maybe that will help?

Hope you're feeling better soon!

Cycling can literally be such a "pain in the a**" sometimes...I just started biking again after a three week break from it and now I have to train my body once again to the saddle time :-(

Hope your recovery well for your race coming up very soon :-)

I'm late to party on this one but I must say that reading this has made my day! (I'm laughing with you, not at you ;-)

I hope you're feeling better by now.
