Ah the memories of early days in the lady garden. These days I think I just stand up a lot more to take the pressure off. 30 miles used to be agony - 60 miles is now a bit uncomfy.
Can we move on to foot pain now - cos that's getting worse and worse.

from doing long miles in cycling shorts I have now changed to tri shorts and have hardened up..........recovering a lot quicker now and have stuck with the hard mans saddle as no spare cash for a girlie one.........
that was a well timed boing for me all right. I've been fretting over what I'm going to wear for a 1/2IM in June and wondering how I can manage getting into proper cycling shorts after the swim as I've been sh!t scared of doing long cycles with anything less than fully padded shorts!
Having read this thread this morning, I had a word with myself, (the word was TTFU) and went out for a four hour cycle/half hour run brick in a pair of tri shorts. I can report that the ladygarden is in no better or worse state than it would be had I done it in padded cycle shorts. What a revelation!
I've always fought against TTFU in that department, but apparently, it's already quite T I can't help feeling in some ways that's a bad thing...<muses>

Well timed 'boing' for Liverbird by the sounds of it...
Thank you for the BOING Nam!
My God, my bits hurt.....
Nobody told me it'd be like this. Now where did I put that icepack?
