The day after my last logged run near the end of April I was struck from behind by a car while on my bike. Fortunately it was a slow speed accident but I still ended up with four rib fractures, a fractured clavicle, a concussion and numerous lacerations. I am hoping to get back to MAF'ing next week(assuming final checkup is okay).
I plan to start all over with MAF training as I know I've lost a great deal of fitness. The concussion has left me with periods of dizziness which are slowly becoming less frequent but have prevented me from walking even moderate distances. Plus I had a lot of pain for the first couple weeks post-accident so really wasn't moving very much at all. My resting HR is now 56-57 compared to 44-46 previously which seems to indicate that I have some work ahead of me.
Anyhow, I'm just wondering if any of you have ever recovered from similar injuries or whether you've used MAF as a rehab-type program. It would be very encouraging to hear that someone else has managed to work their way back and to hear how you did it.
Thanks for any suggestions....
