Injury recovery

Hello Frank and I hope I’m getting this correct.
I had a bad crash in May and fractured a couple of ribs so I had to back down from training and competition for several weeks but feel well enough now to restart training.
I plan on racing Iceman in Michigan on November second and was wondering what training plans to plug in to get me ready?

Thanks for everything.

Hi there @slgabrys -

I recommend sweet spots 1 - 3 to raise your CTL and build your base until you switch from base to race and begin our 6 Week Iceman plan.

Hope that helps - take it slow and be patience with yourself and your ribs. Good luck and go fast!

Thank you Frank.

Broken ribs are always a slow healing process and at 56 years old possibility deadly.

Indeed. Always get clearance from your doc before you ride and always let pain be your guide. If it hurts its too soon to be back on a plan. This is where a good coach can help but athletes who use good judgement can too - this is where having patience I mentioned is gold.
