I broke my elbow in a crash a few weeks ago and have been in a full arm cast ever since. I didn’t want to get the cast all sweaty, so have been off the turbo and frankly moving little.
With a bit of luck I should have the cast off next week and have the all clear to start training again.
At that point I’ll be 10 weeks out from my A Race: a hilly half-ironman. Which is also my first half-ironman.
I’d just started a build phase before th crash, following an inconsistent base phase. But felt I had enough underlying fitness to get to a decent place by late September. I’d even considered cutting back my training a little to focus on cutting weight but was derailed by the broken elbow (and offered better approaches by many of you in another thread!).
My question is, what should I do for the 10 weeks I have available? Jump back into build where I would have been? Restart build? But then what about specialty? I’m a bit lost at what would be the best approach…
