I was going to post, in respond to Robbie, my intention to go for a sub 11hrs in Austria having managed sub 12hrs 2 years ago in Henley.
Things have changed over the weekend as I managed to come off my bike. The backend slipped out on a fast corner leaving me with a wide selector of road rash a deeply cut eyebrow and a helmet that will have to be replaced. The biggest problem is however a fracture to the base of the first metacarpal (broken thumb) which has been fixed with K-wires (pins with bits that stick out of the skin) and a cast.
Anyone else had a similar injury or got any advice training with a wrist/hand cast? I’m planning to get on the turbo tomorrow and run once they put on a light weight cast.
I’ve found some cast protectors online that claim you can swim in them, anyone tried them?
Hope everyone else enjoyed the spring weather over the weekend and got some decent mileage in.
