Trying to regain a little fitness

Following recent accident, I had 4 broken ribs, broken sternum, and had in a cast with to broken fingers.

I did a couple of weeks of recovery and endurance, but deciding I wanted more, did a Half Monty where I didn’t push too hard, so save any aching ribs.

I expect to retest every so often but this seems ok. I do not expect outdoor riding this year



oh man!

Edit: :-1: for the accident :+1: for getting back to it.

I hope the recovery goes quickly and that you’re riding outside soon!

Holy hell! :flushed:

And you titled this thread as “trying to regain a little fitness”? Yeah, getting back on your bike is a victory in itself. Maybe hold off on Sufferlandrian glory again until you can manage HM (or anything) without pain?

Kudos to you!

Were these injuries cycling related? This type of thing is somewhat more common among mtbrs. I myself have a post surgical followup appointment today after having had nose surgery from a mtb otb face-plant.

Ouch. I feel your (and have directly felt the same) pain. You’ll recover, stay strong!
