So my rapid ramp up in time on the bike has led to SUPERANGRY hips (outside, at the top of my ITB) and tight hip flexors and tight calves.
I’ve been foam rolling the big muscles and using the stick as much as I can. But there’s deep pain radiating from the outer hip/top of my ITB still. None of my usual stretches or tactics are working.
And yes, I realize I may need to go back to PT for it, but first…
Bikers, what you got?
