I've told my sorry tale of dropping sideways off Ventoux but seek advice on how to address my upcoming event.
The trip up Ventoux was on 13th July with decent base miles and much more climbing in the tank than ever, I made it up quite comfortably and have do e multiple 100 mile events before.
Now, I have the Manchester 100 for Christie's due on 4th September and obviously had an extended period off the bike. How difficult am I likely to find it? How much fitness do you think you'd lose per week.
First fortnight I managed around 35 miles on the turbo (lightly spinning the fibula fracture and whilst clavicle was rather broken and out of place). Have managed 20 miles on the turbo in one hit this week (operation on shoulder last Monday) and as I'm coming off the painkillers hope for more.
Should I keep the activities short and frequent?
Should I try and get a 50 plus in before the event, and if so how close?
Any tips on returning without a fully functioning shoulder?
Should I give up on the idea?
All feedback/experience greatly appreciated!
