Aches and pains
I'm 41, in good shape, and this past weekend, I went out on the first century of the spring. Everything went pretty well - the weather was cooperative, the route worked out well, the pace was appropriate. The only problem was lower back pain. It started about halfway into the ride and got progressively worse, despite some seemingly well placed breaks and stretches; by the end it was pretty bad! I've changed seats and riding positions a few times, but still struggle with this. Am I doing something wrong (or not doing something right) or is this just a case of 'suffer and smile'? Any and all suggestions welcome.
