In brief: It takes about 6-8

weeks for bone to heal.
If your a triathlete then I would not recommend you returning until this time elapses to ensure complete healing. Obviously you need to work closely to the doc you are seeing who will evaluate you clinically and radiographically.

In brief: Depends on routine

Typically a patient with this type of injury can get back on an exercise bicycle with light resistance at 4-6 weeks.
High impact activity like running is usually reserved for 3 months after injury with a supportive brace
