X Post in xc racing and training
So I broke my left leg just above the ankle last September. 3 months on crutches and all that good stuff... Suffice to say it put a crimp in my riding.
I've recovered nicely and I'm pretty much back to normal, with only minor soreness and limits to my range of mobility. The leg feels nearly as strong as it used to be. The problem I've noticed is that my left leg completely lacks coordination. I used to pride myself on my pedaling stroke, but it feels like my left leg hits every dead spot in the rotation now. Any tips on how to fix this? The only thing I can thing is one legged intervals, but I completely hate them. My physical therapist was great help in regaining balance and mobility, but when it comes to biking stuff she's clueless.
FYI, last year I raced comp with relative success and I'd like to return to that level. I'm on a modified Morris plan and I'm halfway through lifting.
