Fear to lose the training...

Postby nos » Fri Aug 12, 2016 12:57 am

Hello, my training season ended on May 15 when I finish the MTB Marathon of 3 days. After that date, I have a break the bike training during 3 weeks for a injury.

After these three weeks, I returned much better although with higher pulse, somewhat normal. Only it made routes to enjoy in my bike because my training session has ended on May 15.

Just 3 weeks ago, I suffered a sharp fall and I had to sew the knee :(. Now I have no points, but has yet to regenerate tissue. Luckily, I have nothing broken, it's just flesh and skin.

I think I'll don't ride with the bike 4 to 6 weeks at least. Until it heals completely.

This year I trained a lot and I'm afraid to lose all training. Also I'm a little sad because in October, by work, I can not take the bike.

I will lose much?, I'm really worried and do not stop mulling...:(.


Thanks in advance.

You could use the time off the bike to do core strengthening exercises (pilates/yoga) and maybe upper body work. It can also help to keep the cardio fitness up so should be able to ramp back bike fitness more quickly.

This is what I'm doing at the moment - it's the only thing you can do especially if you've got to stay off your feet for the time being.

A physio suggested that some gyms have the arm-bike/hand-cycle machine you could use to keep your cardio okay.
