Cyclist2, have a look at the training thread where I recommended to Ant_F to try a Power Plate for the aching muscles. It seems to be working a treat for him and I do know that it works well for me. (Vibro Plate is a smaller version of the Gym jobs.)

Foam from Clark rubber here in Aus worked a treat. 4 inches thick and cut to size with a u shape cut out for my rear end. The ultimate test was wearing my rowing nicks... No problems $10 well spent. To alleviate blood blisters on hand, *** DELETE - SPAM *** sponge,covered with a cotton sock and electrical tape worked wonders. I could have used cycling bar taped and doubled wrap but this was a cheaper option. Being over 50 and on blood thinners guess you are more prone to issues. There are solutions. Now I just need to get off my backside and row row row. Looking forward to belting out the ks. Thanks for the advice. It worked cheers
