Butt, and Wrists/Forearms
Ok I'm normally a runner going anywhere from 3-6 miles a day and have been for nearly 4 years.
So I decide biking couldn't hurt and looked in to mountain biking. Considering there are tons of areas to train/ride here in Austin I figured what the heck. This is a good alternative to running and soon I'll be taking up swimming varying each exercise from day to day. I do the normal gym thing and go almost every day but haven't for the past week.
So, I buy the helmet a bike Novara Bonanza thinking it'd be alright. After picking up some running socks and shorts I leave the store anticipating my next days ride.
I haven't a clue as to how far I should go but remember doing a few miles before I started running each day. Hell, if I can run 6-10 miles I can surely bike 20 no?
Well, I went along my normal running route along road and through some ditches. I went well beyond that and biked for nearly two hours. Not pushing myself to hard the entire time but trying to get my heartrate up and breathing stable. Few hills, a little rocky terrain sometimes, and a bit of offroading as much as I could.
The ride was fun, hell it was wonderful having that sort of speed and just going along the countryside seeing all the stuff.
I noticed slight discomfort around my wrists/forearms and would have to extend them every now and then to mitigate that. No after effects from that, but thought I'd ask if anyone knew what the deal was with that?
Now, a day later and after running my normal 5 I feel it. Right around my ass. Yep theres some pain there around the boney part of the ass that seems to be bruised I think. Now I've done some reading and figured it may be the seat height? Or is it that I just went so far my first time out?
Any thoughts, suggestions, etc..?
