Pardon my frankness, but I have been doing SSB mid volume for a few weeks now and my ass / lower regions are starting to get numb and sore mid workouts.
I don’t have saddle sores, but just numbness and mild discomfort. It is making these workouts quite unpleasant.
Some are on the TT bike, some are on my normal road bike.
I can just about do an hour and I am not looking forward to some of the hour plus rides that are coming.
(The workouts themselves are challenging, but not over the top.)
I have tried 3 different saddles that I own and none are perfect. I have also adjusted height up/down and fore and aft a little to see if that helps.
I have also tinkered with the angle etc. I am usually quite good at bike adjustments etc. I have done about 3,000 miles this year on and off the trainer. Normally though, before TrainerRoad, I only did 30 to 45 mins on the trainer.
I have tried 2 or 3 different cycling shorts. I have also tried a bit of chamois cream from time to time.
I would say on a scale of 1 being no discomfort and 10 being terrible, I am at a 7 after 30 mins or so.
Is it a case of just toughing up etc or does anyone have any more suggestions that might help?
