I also got a bike re-fit by an awesome fitter I've ridden with a few times this summer. Not only did he set everything up properly, he took measurements, notes, video, and wrote a report on his findings and recommendations. I've been fit before by my LBS...by former pro triathletes and I'll say it's always good to get another opinion, even when you think you're dialed in right. The focus of the re-fit was to open my hip angle a bit more.
I rode an hour on Tuesday, which went well, ran 5K on Wednesday at about 5:15 pace, which is decent, and then rode again today for 1:40. Everything was going really well until the last 5 minutes today when I felt an instant flash of hip pain that didn't go away. The pain-o-meter went from 0-60 in 2 seconds so I did a bit of single leg pedaling until I got home.
This is the second of two weeks where my kids are at my parents place at Tremblant and having far too much fun. Back to school for them next week so they closing out the summer in style. Their grandparents have taken them fishing, to parties, to Santa's Village, horseback riding, swimming, to the mountain for activities, cycling 20km, and had many campfires in the backyard, roasted marshmallows, did arts and crafts, played checkers, chinese checkers, and a few card games. We call it 'Camp Tremblant' and are so happy they can all spend so much great time together. These are precious moments and for us to have an empty nest for two weeks: priceless!
We were up last weekend to give my folks some relief and took some shots of the fun times we had at the base of the mountain:
There are also an indoor and outdoor hot tubs.
Worth a visit for kids, for sure.
