This Sunday I took a long-for-me (88mi) trip along the I&M canal in Illinois. I was exhausted by the end, but probably could have pressed on farther if it weren't for strong testicular pain I was having for the last 10 or so miles. It was only on the right side, but it seemed to just creep in gradually.
The I&M is gets really rough and gravelly for the last 50 miles or so I was on it. I'm wondering if maybe it was just a long period of repeated stress that caused the pain to develop, or maybe in my tiredness I started sitting on it, or cutting off circulation over time, or who knows. All I know is I want to keep doing long rides and I never want it to happen again!
anyone else have experience in this matter?
