I’ve been training with TR since February this year and achieved great results. About 3 weeks ago, I had my first bike crash and broke my left collarbone (no surgery required). Along with that, my ribs were heavily bruised as well. I was in the middle of week 3 of SSB Mid Volume 1 when I had the crash. Since my shoulder is not hurting anymore early this week, I decided to continue my training, picking up where I left off.
While I was able to complete Tunnabora, Carter, and Monitor +1, I noticed that my average and maximum heart rate was about 8 - 10 higher than usual. Today, I really struggled in doing McAddie and I failed at the end of the 2nd interval. Again, my HR was about 10 bpm higher compared to my last McAddie, which pushed me to above threshold (I’m 50 yo and today I reached 180 bpm).
For any of you who have been in a similar situation, it would be great if I could hear how long it took until you were able to continue training. And also, while recovering, did you do an easier plan like the SSB Low Volume or the Traditional Base, or just stay off the trainer?
Thanks for the insight,
