Very nice. I hope it continues.ovo (& others)--you asked me for advice privately and i responded, but i wanted to add a little update as i had a bit of a breakthrough.
in addition to the normal issues noted above WRT max power, i've been having a bit of trouble with cornering and descending. my leg and hip just don't move quite the way they used to. i'm a big believer in increasing ROM and breaking up scar tissue. i've been open to alternative treatments (mentioned 'cupping' before....as with acupuncture i don't really believe in all of the miracle stuff attributed to it, but it can be useful for breaking up some scar tissue along the same lines as massage), as well as straight-up massage. for some injuries it, along with acupuncture, seems to have helped; it hasn't for others. (for the acupuncture, my main thing with it is restoring some neuromuscular firing patterns...'waking up' some stuff that is not firing right due to injury.) it's also super cheap stuff for me ($15/hour), but for someone who is open-minded and/or willing to try anything to see if it works for them, it's worth exploring.
but back to the point: i had an absolutely brutal massage yesterday which seemed to finally break up some scar tissue. this was like full body weight of the masseuse/knees on legs/glutes. i was able to move today with more fluidity in the hips and legs. the lateness in my pedal stroke seemed a bit better (helps with max power), but the main thing i noticed is i'd lost some of the robot-like stiffness when i tried to do things like lean the bike and/or shift my hips. i could make more subtle movements instead of doing more stepped motions.
if you haven't already tried it, working with a good masseuse can be money well-spent and i think it may have some influence on returning to more fluid motion and, therefore, max power. ($75 for 1.5-2 hours)
Again, thanks for all you've shared. I will certainly look at that once I actually see how I behave on the bike.
