Do you ever just go thru a slump? How do you get over it? The mental part is the worst.
Yep, I seem to be in one of these slumps right now. As far as I can tell, happens to others too.
All you can do is keep riding, try to keep a positive outlook, and let it work itself out with time. It's hard to improve your state of mind if you keep thinking about how terrible you feel
If the pains don't get better, you may need to make slight adjustments your bike and/or your riding habits. Over time, we all change, so it makes perfect sense that we wouldn't always be able to ride the same way with the bike adjusted exactly the same.
