So I just started the process of coming back from Patellar Tendonitis. I just had a mild one, so had a total of 20 days off, with some rides in the middle (see attached photo). The first physio said ride as long as it doesn’t hurt, hence the middle rides there, but when my regular physio had time again for an appointment, he asked me to take a full week off - 20th to 27th. So the baxter below yesterday was the first trainer after some time off.
Coming back now though, physio asked that I try to keep it under 80% for the first 2 weeks or so… This is easy to do when doing group rides, but seems hard when trying to get the most out of the trainer.
How would you do to get back on track with under 80% intensity? I set this up as for now:
Any thoughts? Also lowered my FTP from 290 to 280, as a start…
