Ok so I am well confused - when I do long distances, sometimes my coccyx hurts - I mean, it hurts like it takes my breath away when I try to straighten my back. Other times (like on this mornings ride) it doesn't hurt at all. Then of course, my butt gets sore and my cycling becomes the most amazingly painful, hateful, nasty piece of sh1t and all I want is to sell the bike and forget triathlons forever.
Why does this happen? Is it something that just happens (in which case, tell me now so I can forget the whole cycling thing and just carry on with my running) or is it perhaps that my saddle is too high or low? Can it be because I have done too much (only ever happens when I am fit - it's not a saddle sore from not being in the saddle - it happens regardless) or to little in terms of cardio? Can I blame the wind? If it's a headwind and I am cycling into it for a while (nasty wind on last race and slight wind on last triathlon, but no wind this morning and no pain)?
I ask because I hate cycling now. I hate my bike and I am dreading my race in 3 weeks time. Until this morning and then I have a good ride. Can I do anything to stop the pain?
