4 weeks ago I fell and I broke my wrist (displaced distal radius – Colles fracture) when I was training for the bycicle leg of an olympic distance triathlon. The actual race will take place 6 days after they take off my cast. Despite the cast on my arm, I’ve been able to run and ride a stationary bike, so I kept my cardivascular system in good shape. The problem is that I haven’t been able to swim and won’t be until the cast is off (a total of 6 weeks without swimming). Is it unrealistic to think that I will be able to swim 1 mile 1 week after the cast is off? How about riding the bycicle. Can I ride a real road bycicle 1 week after the cast is off? Will I need a wrist splint? where do i get one?
I am doing a little experiment. Without exercise blood pressure and pulse rate went up. With exercise it decreased. why is this? how is this related to circulatory system and the cardivascular system?
energy metabolism in the cells of the body?
How are they related to provise for the essential functions of the human body.
