Yes, and I am not kidding, no buns intended (oops, that’s puns)! My last two rides have not been enjoyable, at least not when going longer than a couple of hours. For some reason a very strange pain comes on in my left buttock. When it first appears it feels almost as if sitting on a sharp cornered surface for too long, than gradually progresses down the leg. A little while later that left buttock radiates a dull ache, while it also feels like the butt and the thigh went to sleep; sort of a weird buzzing sensation.
I took off riding for the past couple of days, because the only thing I could come up with is that, perhaps, I strained a muscle during my last long mountain ride. If that is the case there might be some inflamed tissue, although I can’t recollect an ‘ouch’ moment. Today, I went for a short (less than 15 mile) ride to test my buns. It felt a lot better, but still feels weird. It clearly is not my equipment, as nothing has changed in the setup or components, therefor it’s got to be my old butt.
I think I’ll take another day off tomorrow, as Saturday will bring another Century ride. Can’t wait to ride with my butt asleep!! Anyway, if any of you ever experienced something similar and can shed some light on this issue, much appreciated!
