andrews37 daysNot sure if fully recovered. Had 3 weeks completely off once I was sure what the issue was, then started running at 20km in a week adding 10% each and taking a calcium a day and an extra one when I go running.details
Zimmers38 daysToo much running... too soon to try and get back in shape. details

WileyKyO-T44 daysPool jogging and biking helped recovery and helped me maintain an acceptable level of fitness.details
Grandpa Jameson44 dayslikely a stress reaction. took 18 days off of running. need to really work on ankle mobility.details

immy49 daysAqua jogging was brilliant and helped me maintain an excellent level of fitness throughout the period when I couldn't run. I came back and felt that my running was stronger than ever. I am still a bit puzzled as to the cause of this injury... I think it was a combination of worn-out shoes, a lack of consistency in my training and general stress. I think I need to monitor the state of my shins by palpation because I didn't have pain in my shins when running leading up to the injury. So I can'...details
runninghils49 daysSuspected cause was excessive long racing with inadequate recovery between Untamed New England and Gold Rush Mother Lode... followed by the Rage and CPT Nationals.details
Tooms53 daysCause - running 7 of 10 days at Easter orienteering carnival in lightweight shoes on too little run training. (guess). Resolution - non-running time. Surprisingly slow recovery.details
Hanabanana54 daysno idea why it happened, but i stopped using my ankle braces and that seemed to help so...details

AmeliaKennedy70 daysNo more pain at fracture site, that is not to say that I'm home free yet, but I'm counting this as recovered and logging shin splints now.details
immy75 daysI guess the volume was just too much for my legs after the last one... In particular, being silly and adding in extra runs because I felt good, and then pushing through a long run when my body was telling me I was too tired. Cross training got me through this one as well - I think my fitness is probably as good as it has ever been to be honest. Maybe that's just wishful thinking...details

iansmith92 daysI required about three weeks on crutches and considerable rest from activity to recover. After about four weeks, I started stationary biking and eventually graduated to ellipticals and limited treadmill work. Resuming regular activity took about ten-twelve weeks. Probable cause was excessively rapid build up of training. I consumed lots of calcium, though it's not obvious if that helped.details
immy92 daysCauses: more offroad running on hard tracks with long downhills, not slowing down easy runs enough, predisposition to stress fractures. Recovery plan was the usual but progress was slower than the previous ones... Really need to get to the bottom of this and stop getting stress fractures!details
veliceraptor95 daysSuspected cause was too much rollerskiing on bumpy roads. Also, I was training with it for a month, so that is likely to have slowed down the healing process.details

joch55103 days8/8 - After 6 weeks rest, seems the injury is gone.details
Siggi103 dayslisten to the smallest hints your body gives you - one leg, one foot recovers much slower than the other from a hard training? maybe rest longer, do not train that hard, warm up better recovery - no running, no hard-impact sports at all for a few weeksdetails
cmorse105 daysSeems to be recovered as of 6May, haven't run on it yet, but 50 miles of biking plus plenty of walking on Block Island didn't bother it at all.. So we'll call it recovered and throw caution to the wind at US Champs this weekend.. 2AUG - Finally got ok to run again, but it will be a dreadfully slow return. Plan gets me up to 5km by Oct and a reasonable 30 mpw volume by Christmas...details

andrews116 daysFunny one, never too painful really, but took a very long time to recover from. Too much fast running without building up to it caused it.details

nmulder125 daysInjury was caused by over-racing. Cape Odyssey week 1, Eden Challenge week 2, Rogaine week 3. It was finally diagnosed as a Grade 4 Stress Fracture, the worst. There was a complete break across the upper part of the bone, high shin area. Took 4 months off running, intially on crutches for 1.5 months.details

amandap138 daysWell I took off since October. Xtrained. I'm hoping that the xtraining didn't make it take longer for me to heal but who knows.details

Jac166 daysÄven skogslöpning ger nötning och slitage och smalbenen är min svagaste länk. Hållbarheten (ben, ligament och senor) ligger efter konditionen. =>Färre långtävlingar. Färre långpass löpning. Fler pass. Mer kvalitet. Mer alternativ träning. Vila minst 1ggr var 7:e dag.details
iansmith180 daysThe only solution seemed to be to rest it. While it was incorrectly diagnosed, fracturing it further was (in hindsight) not a good idea. Recovery time indicates a rough sense of when I was able to train again after the complete fracture of my tibia in August. I suspect the stress fracture would have essentially healed in two to three months. details

codymonster315 daysJust say no to Mizunos!! Also, try to land with the feet under the body, not out in front, which results in higher braking force.details
