    Eric,

    Great episode. Love how genuine you are, and for all of us including Rodrigo that are in our mid life, with young kids and are trying to Race it is good to hear a Pro that we can identify with.

    Just wanted to comment on Rodrigo’s lower back pain. He menitoned that he always train in flat roads and the course was hilly. The fact that it went away after a few miles of running tells me that is very likely that the low back and hamstring pain was due to not being used to climbing. Even if you are the most efficient pedaler going uphill the tendency will be to recruit some of those lower back, glute muscles that you normally will not load while pedaling in the flat.

    Keep up the great show.
