Neck pain on the bike

Posted: 15/06/2015 at 15:08

I thinbk this has been building for a few rides, but the Velothon really showed it up yesterday.

When on the bike, and changing postion (drops/hood/climbing) I get a real pain in my neck around shoulder height. I got it quite badly last week but had assumed it was gettign used to tribars again for the first time this year. It can't be tribars as I took them off fot the velothon (it appears I was the only one to actually take them off).

I'm sure it wasnt like this last year, but I may have done a bit mroe training then, and had a better core?

Looking at my bike I think at some point I dropped the bars down the stem by 1 thick riser (about 10mm) and I tried to level the saddle out a few weeks ago.

Does anyone think they have some idea as to what it may be, or what I shoudl try to ease it? First thing I'm going to do is put the bars higher

I would say it's a wetsuit issue.

I have days when I get my wetsuit on right abd it feels good and days when it al goes wrong. I had to breast stroke the swim at Bala and I think it was fit. I swim at one outdoor lake and have good and bad days. Try putting your wetsuit on and see how you can move. Try a practice swim and note where the wetsuit fits on good and bad days.

You may need a new suit. Do you have any tri shops nearby you can try ones on at?

Is there anyway of getting a second set of ant+ data displayed on the screen at the same time? I've looked into traineroad companion, but you need 2 accounts and so on. If its only every now and then, or not even in trainer road, but for general training, or long turbo session whilst watching other things, is there an easy program to display ant+ data?

Would love to be there again but I'm afraid I'm on the bike leg so I'll just give you all some abuse as I ride through, very slowly

I think a lot of people adapt the fink plan to suit themselves. Even if it's just by not following every swim set to the letter it's an adaptation. Fink will have had average speeds in mind for his sessions so some people will need to add extra time on, maybe the plan would have been better written in miles and followers take as long as they take
