The road to recovery is long, hard and riddled with challenges. Today was day #1. As many of my normal audience knows, I was involved in a training accident on November 2nd where I broke both my pelvis and my hip. Now 24 days later, I’ve been cleared to ride easy for the next week until I meet with the specialist to get full clearance to ride hard.
Today’s ride was an easy 30 minutes endurance spin on the trainer in my house and it was AWESOME! I hate riding on the trainer, but it felt really good to be back on the bike. I can definitely tell that it’s going to take some time to feel 100% though. After getting off my hip felt pretty sore and I can feel that I’ve lost a lot of strength in my right hip flexor.
Time to get back to work!
So, this post is going to be a little short because I only have one hand at the moment.
I was on a standard training ride to Hygiene via 36 and something came off of a car and I hit it. The cops told me it was a piece of a bumper but it happened so fast that I don’t really know for sure. I bounced off the concrete at approximately 33 mph and was taken to the hospital by paramedics. Once there they discovered that I had a broken wrist and pelvis.
What does this mean for riding? The doctors predict I won’t be able to ride again for between 4-6 weeks.
I’ll keep updating on my recovery and return to riding as my recovery progresses.
