    Getting old...anyone else suffer from wallet syndrome ?

    So after super Sundays mega pretzel with Ports ....then a 60 mile RL effort on Thursday ....I woke up yesterday with what felt like a trapped nerve near the ball joint from hip to leg...quick look on t'net and it's called ' wallet syndrome'

    A real PITA as my wife says I'm walking like Ive shit myself.


    does anyone else suffer??

    I can't even listen to Radio 1 anymore! That's old.

    To be fair though Boxie, you do some ridiculously long rides on Zwift. Short and often are the way to go with the occasional long one thrown in now and then.

    You need a new saddle.

    I also suffer in the saddle - but that's because of my fat arse.

    Never suffered from Wallet syndrome as there's nothing but moths in my wallet. Think you may need a new saddle or get out on the road. On the turbo you tend to stay in the one position which is not good for you. Get out on the road or move your ass about more on the turbo.

    Zwifting is much more repetitive and taxing than outdoor cycling.
    I agree that longer rides, perhaps, are better done outdoors where you vary your position more and can rest your legs going downhill.

    Having said that, I am going Zwifiting now

    Boxxy, does.... does that mean .... we are not doing the Mega Pretzel tomorrow????!!!!!!

    Good....cause I have got a sneaking suspicion I might be somewhat dehydrated tomorrow morning.

    Oh Ports ole bean....I can't do nothing tomoz ...blinking Mother's Day ...which is the same as Father's Day....I've got to do as I'm told...no cycling!!..bah!!

    saddle wise....it's fine...but when I'm zwifting ...as the others can tell you the reason I'm a bit faster up the hills is because I'm out of the saddle...but I must admit long rides are bit meh in zwift.....unless you got company.....right Ports..lol

    i know where your coming from Nick....music just seem like noise now.....and im a old skool raver 88-95

    in all maybe AP is right...I need to have a break....

    normal zwifting will resume next week

    You caught the ‘Summer of Love’, Boxxy? That’s awesome, I didn’t make it out until ‘97 by which time the Rave scene was in its death throes.

    I like the sound of that, I may suggest it at the next village hall committee meeting to get the elderly moving. Sounds more fun than line dancing.
