poor condition or time for a new saddle?

I finally got around to putting my bike on the trainer last night. I hadnt been on the bike since September... I rode 35 minutes +/- and seemed comfortable while riding. This morning my sit bones were sore. I got on to ride tonight and was uncomfortable on the saddle. I adjusted it back a bit and it seemed better but still a little sore.

am I in poor condition or should I start looking for a new saddle?

My money would be on poor condition. Was this saddle comfortable in September after a season of riding? Has anything changed the saddle's condition?

i dont remember it being uncomfortable

the saddle is the same as when I left it. I wore bike shorts then and now. I'll ride on it for another week or so and report back...

Agreed...So the season ends? I thought we just put on our fenders and studs and kept riding.

That happens to me after no time riding. It goes away in about three days. Don't worry.
