I’ve been riding for approximately 2 years and I am generally pain free riding outdoors.
This includes periods of load of up to 400km per week and crit racing. I have had a bike fit within the last 12 months and feel like my position is good.
My problem occurs when riding on a trainer. Everytime I try, I suffer pain in my feet, ankles, achilles and knees.
I have just started a training block on traineroad and can feel the same issues creeping in again - it progressively gets worse.
I feel like I may be tensing my whole lower leg and this is causing torque from the feet through to the knee.
The feet, ankle and achilles feel like strain while the knee is painful below and under the patella.
I’m trying to determine if my pedaling technique changes indoors and if any drills or cues can solve this.
Is it possible I’m excessively ankling on the trainer?
Any help would be appreciated.
