In a freak ski accident (boot failure!?!) last Friday, I sustained a 'minor' ankle sprain. Doc recommended 10 days off the bike at a minimum and maybe more. I'm half way through my sentence and as of now it feels like it will be more.
I dying for a ride like a junkie wants a fix - even a session on the trainer or spin class would do.
It's going to take some discipline to stay off the bike long enough to give the ankle a chance to heal well enough to avoid a chronic issue. It will almost be a pleasure to regain the lost fitness after this.
How do you guys deal with a forced layoff from riding?
