So I went horizontal on an oily corner yesterday, along with three other guys. Broken scaphoid and radial-head. Looking at around 6 weeks to heal up.
I was around week 2/3 of short power build mid vol (with slightly patchy consistency for the last couple of weeks due to work constraints) however power feels good and I was feeling strong. FTP 280, 66kg, so around 4.2 w/kg. Raced crits in UK at cat3 level the last couple of years.
I don’t have any fixed goals or races this year; I’ll dabble with racing (at best), but basically I want to still hang with the top guys in my team on the Saturday morning chain gang.
Given that it will be 6 weeks until training ‘proper’ will begin again, where should I start- back at base?
In the meantime,I intend to spin my legs lightly for 20-30 mins, Z2, sitting upright on the turbo (one handed) most days after the initial swelling has gone down, to keep some semblance of fitness.
Advice on healing, mindset, and where to kick it all again would help!
