Day 2: Bike Mechanic

Posted Apr 01 2008 12:00am
Day 2 of my vacation, I had planned a 50 mile ride but my calf was still sore and I didn't want to risk an injury so I skipped the ride. I think I figured out why my calf got so sore. I changed my saddle a while ago because I wanted to try my Fizik Arione saddle again, and it's quite a bit thicker than my Selle Italia. When I changed saddles, I forgot to account for this difference by lowering my saddle so I essentially raised my saddle a bit and I think it was too high and I over-stretched my calf muscles and they responded by tightening up. No big deal, but I hate missing a workout because of a stupid mistake. Live and learn, I guess.

So I went to the pool early and swam for an hour (3000 yards) and went for a 6.5 mile run with Cheri when she got home from work. The rest of the day was spent relaxing, running errands and working on bikes. I got Cheri's bike ready to ride so she can take it out for its first ride today. Here's a picture
