Does anyone have neck or shoulder soreness after a few days of training?
I had been training actively for almost 2 years. Weekly about 10hrs training with a day rest. Completed a few 70.3 and full distance IM race.
The aches and soreness on my upper shoulder and extends to my neck still put me off my training at times. I had done retul bike fit. Most indoor rides are 1-2hrs and outdoor rides 3-4hrs. I am quite a flexible snake and stretch every night.
I get the sores and aches even when i run although I always remind myself to relax the shoulders and rotate them every 1km. Most times, after my bike or run, I feel its the neck and shoulder more taxing than my legs.
The sores will usually go away if I give myself a 3-4 days rest. Sports massage do help but they are kind of pricey if done on a weekly basis.
My pysiotherapist was saying its due to weak back muscles and I was given some simple sets of back stretch cord exercise but it isn’t helping much.
Anyone having the same problem?
