I’ve been on the trainer for about 6 weeks straight on a mid-volume sweet spot base plan and prior to that was coming off some intermittent riding (mostly outdoors) as I recovered from Lymes. I’m usually on my bike about ~360 hours a year, roughly 5k-ish miles. My fit on my road bike (which is on the trainer) is pretty dialed, but extremely aggressive. I’ve done 150 miles on it before with no serious discomfort.
Today I got out on my gravel bike (much less aggressive) and I have pretty bad neck pain. I get the sense that I’m not used to holding my head in the right position for riding outdoors – or rather not used to it with the helmet on. Anyone train with a helmet on indoors? I thought my set-up indoors had me looking forward but maybe I’m looking down too much. Anyone else experience something similar and have insight?
