What on earth is a 'popped rib' I hear you cry? A popped rib is where one (or more if your unlucky) of your ribs comes out of place / alignment with your vertebrae and / or sternum cause a vast amount of discomfort in both the front and rear of the chest. Seeing as i rode almost 300 miles last week and spent a little under 14 hours in the saddle this could not have helped matters at all, especially whilst cycling in the 'aero tuck' position and desperately seeking the aero flat back.
Those that know me know I detest 'indoor cycling' in the form of the turbo (apart fro the non stop 8 hours i did for sport relief) but with a production in the theatre this week its meant a lot of lonnnggggg days and not much daylight so last night I hit a little bit of high cadence turbo training.
All the cyclists out there know that we never need an excuse to justify new kit and a few grams of weight saving or a few extra watts of gains BUT it's always welcomed when we have one, even if it is as a result of an unwelcome cist.
