So I was an idiot, went running in the snow, fell and smashed up my elbow. You can read the sorry tale over on Broken. which will save me some one handed typing but I was in surgery 6 hours, have a whole bunch of metal in my arm, in a cast wrist to armpit for at least another 10 days.
Considering a week ago I was in surgery, I'm feeling pretty ok, get a bit tired but walked 5/6 miles yesterday and today. I was training for London, which I'll need to defer, and running 5 days a week, spinning 2 and doing at least 2 weights sessions so I'm now wondering what is realistic to hope for in terms of getting back to running. The physio said once the cast is off spinning will be fine. So thats hopefully not too far off.
Ideas for keeping my fitness and not going mad gratefully received. If you've done anything similar would love to hear recovery stories, especially in terms of timescale.
I'll be following doctor's orders but currently they have told me to use the hand on my injured side as much as possible and that walking is fine.
