R Lower Leg, Stress Fracture

2013-04-19 – 2013-08-02

Grade: 3

tibial fasciaitis - more damage than typical shin splints, less than stress fracture.

19May - thought it was better - Soapstone proved otherwise - perhaps time to see a specialist

10Jun - had bone scan done, looks like a stress fracture after all - fibula? See ortho next week.

Seems 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...
