Broken wrist - how can i stay fit?!
Suffered my first cycling accident today - now stuck with a broken wrist and 6 weeks in plaster. I'd got it all planned that i was gonna up my mileage this winter with a view to improving on my first season. Now i'm really not sure what i can do. I've thought about maybe getting on the turbo, but can i (or anyone else) bear a sweaty, smelly cast for weeks on end? I've recently been doing a lot of running (did my first marathon the other week) and was looking forward to getting seriously back into the bike. How much fitness might i lose in 6 weeks? I'm worried that a lot of the miles i've put in over the last 2 years are going to be lost and i'll be back to where i was before i took up cycling. Any thoughts?
