Hello. I fractured no.9 (so much for lucky number), posterior. Couldn’t run the first three days. Couldn’t do much really. Not doing any fast running at the moment, but from week two I was able to get out there at easy pace, avoiding uneven surfaces and mad descents to start with. Happy to trot round a 2 hour run at ~5min/km pace the third week, throwing in some tempo the fourth (and light trail).
Running was probably the easiest cardio option. Few trips on the Brompton and some Wattbike sessions were uncomfortable at first. It’s only in week 6 that I’ve been able to put the hammer down, and deal with twisting forces out the saddle. On the erg, from week 2 I could row with damper on minimum, but am now up to speed, though avoiding hard starts.
Codeine and Ibuprofen in week one, twice daily calcium supplement throughout rehab. Plenty of sleep, once sleep was comfortable.
Get well soon.
