This is my first time posting to forum. Please forgive if I am doing it incorrectly.
I was hit by a car on June 4th. Long story short... my lower left leg was broken and my left shoulder was dislocated. Prior to the accident my fitness was through the roof. Now, I feel like I did when I first began riding 5 years ago. Maybe worse.
I am riding (on my trainer) 60 minutes/day, twice/day, 6 days/week. My sister-in-law is a physical therapist, working for the orthpedic surgeon who stuffed the bone back in. She says that this riding schedule is A-Ok as long as I don't push it too hard. Oddly enough, I am riding without pain, but I can't walk very far without soreness to my knees.
Does anyone have advice on how long I can expect the strength and fitness to return. I am highly motivated to get back on the road.
