Well, my first gravel race ended with a shattered collarbone and a separated AC joint. Did this just as I hit 4.0 watt/kg and was feeling better than ever on the bike.
I have surgery in 2 days to get a plate put in and already know I will miss 2 C races. I have a B race (150 mile Gravel Locos) May 22nd that I still would like to do.
Does anyone have advise on how to somewhat train while mending a broken collarbone? I know I will lose some fitness, but I would be the happiest guy in the world if I can find a way to minimize the damage. I plan to use this time to work on my diet and sleep patterns, but getting back to training asap is my main goal. Should I hold off on my B race to really focus on my rehab and my preparation for my A race? First time breaking a bone so this is all new to me… Thanks!
