    What to do when injured

    I am injured right now so cannot do my normal activities. Very frustrating especially as I socialise by training or doing outdoor physical activities also.

    What does everyone do?

    I was thinking of a holiday to break the routine but I love going to places and doing outdoors physical things!

    I especially want to go to places to train.

    Perhaps there is a good holiday destination for light activities.

    I can walk around a little (10 minutes before i have to stop for the day)

    I live in Australia.

    Alternatively, I can be a recluse and read books all day.

    I appreciate your suggestions.

    Wow, this is a tough one.

    Are you able to swim?

    The one time I was too injured to go to work I just stayed in bed and slept it off.

    Of course, Bike Forums is always on!

    Hope you recover soon.

    Video games. Nothin kills the time like playing a good game. Doom3 is a must for a new gamer...just be sure you have eithre good headphones, or some nice big speakers to hear the audio through....and turn down the lights....it's a scarefest, and a great game all in one.

    F.E.A.R. is another great one.

    Dang. Go away for a couple weeks, only to come back and hear sad news. What happened?

    O.P. Do you have access to a swimming pool? You can do a lot more to rehab in a pool than you can elsewhere. Motions that put too much stress on you outside the water, can often be performed while partially submerged.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    I appreciate your suggestions.
    Ah you are in OZ. Makes it tougher, there are so many great things to do outside and so much of the social life is outside. And 10 minutes of walking as the limit is way too little for almost anything. But here goes the suggestions of a tourist.

    Would you be able to sit on a bus for the day? If so perhaps try one of the tourist busses. Of course pick one hitting places you have not gone. When there as a tourist I did a couple and there is still one site I remember, and it still hurts in a way. The bus stopped and there was about a 1/2 mile walk to an overlook where we could see where the trail went. It was about a 4 mile loop with several hundred feet vertical. It was beautiful. Some day I will amke it back just to do that trail. But we only had 15-30 minutes, not possible that day. Right now the bus may still be a bit much for you. But there will ba a transition. A time when you have 30 minutes walking. Then 40 .... So perhaps research things like this for now. Then think of the buss trips as scouting. It is a chance to find more things to do once you are better. It is amazing how everywhere there are things right next door that you never thought about. And I thnik Oz has more places that could fit that than most. Perhaps read the tourist books. Are you decent with a camera? If so perhaps take that 10 minute walk to a good spot and wait for the wildlife to come to you.

    Oh and if you can find a staduim that works perhaps see a Rugby, League or Rules match. Perhaps this will not work at a pro level. But I know there are several top level Rugby club sides where the pitch is far less than a 5 minute walk from parking and assume the same holds for Rules and League. Watching is not as good as playing, but it is at least something outside. (I'm sure about the Rugby because that was why I was down there. And BTW I played on a bad knee because there was no way I was going on tour and not getting in one match. Then later there was no way we would play against Brothers and I would not declare myself fit to play.)

    Just thought of one more. There are lots of public gardens. Many have benches where you can sit. Perhaps take that book you were thinking of reading. Better than sitting at home and some of them are very nice.

    I've never been laid up all that long. Mostly I read and e-mail people I've always meant to e-mail but have never gotten around to e-mailing. There's also judge shows.
