Kieren, I am sorry to hear that you have been injured.

GRF is approximately proportional to body weight divided by the proportion of time spent on stance. As you usually spend a smaller proportion of the stride duration on stance as you increase pace, GRF increases. Therefore as you come back from injury, be cautious about getting airborne. If you plan to use both cycling and running to recover fitness, I would be inclined to consider a combination of easy running and more intense cycling in the early stages.

Thanks Canute. I picked up an avulsion fracture to my talus in a trail race. As injuries go, it's not terrible. I could do other types of fitness and load bear to an extent - more so than say a knee or back injury.

I've been able to spin and resistance train. Eversion and dorsiflexion were the laggards but are finally catching up. I was thinking about track intervals because they are flat but defer to your suggestion. I see the physio on Friday whom I think will give me very cautious beginner plan.

Got something to say?
