Proper bike fit is one of the more important elements to enjoying a ride. A proper bike fit can help prevent neck pain, back pain, hand numbness, groins numbness, knee pain and more. Buying a bike on sale is a great deal but you may end up spending the money at the doctor later. Find a reputable fitter in your area and make sure you have a proper fit!View Thread
FHL tendonitis is pretty rare in non ballet dancers. I would make sure that is what is really bothering you and that you do not have metatarsalgia. These are different problems and are treated differently. As for shoes too small, I would not recommend this. you may end up causing more problems than you fix by doing this. Have you tried changing brands of shoes, the forefoot padding varies by brand and sometimes this simple switch can be a great help.View Thread
Keep in mind with the warmer weather upon us, that our bodies will take some time to adapt to the temperature changes. Our bodies adapt sweat rates and electrolyte losses when the ambient temperature rises. However, this takes time to happen. On long runs and rides be very aware of fluid losses and replete both fluids and electrolytes. You may want to consider weighing yourself before and after your workout to have a way to track weight loss (and thus fluid loss) during your workouts.View Thread
