My hips are not happy and i need some advice / ideas...
Have found in the last week that anything over 2 hours outdoors and my hips are becoming ridiculously tight, to the point that standing in the pedals is super-painful and i just can't put proper power through the pedals whether sitting or standing.
Have checked and double checked saddle height and fore/aft and nothing's changed.
Have always done a lot of stretching and foam roller and have started doing even more stuff focussed around hips, quads and gluten since this started happening. It doesn't seem to be helping.
Only thing that's changed in my riding recently is a bit more high intensity on the turbo, and i did my longest ride in a very long time (185 very hilly kms) on sunday.
I feel well recovered from the big ride in myself and my energy levels etc. So not sure if the hip thing is a symptom of that, but have done plenty of long-ish rides in recent months.
Any ideas at all? It's ruining my outdoor riding
