Ok so maybe I've been overdoing it slightly - looks like I might have a stress fracture. Since about Edinburgh I think I've had a mild pain on and off down the inside of my shin but thought it was nothing. Earlier this week it did start to feel a bit worse but I still though it was just a niggle, then ran a hard session on Thursday and towards the end of the session it started to hurt. After I finished and then tried to start warming down it was very painful so I stopped and walked home. Throughout the rest of the day it slowly got worse until I couldn't put any weight on it at all so I went to A&E Friday morning. Obviously stress fractures are hard to diagnose so the doctor said it could be but she didn't think it was, I still think it could be because of how painful it is and where the pain is but it is somewhere on the scale of becoming a stress fracture anyway (and how much do doctors know about running injuries anyway). So I have crutches now so I can at least get around and the only thing I can do now is rest completely (probably start cross training in a week or two). When I go home for Christmas (in a week) I will try to see my physio at home (Team Durham physios are a bit rubbish).

(rest day)

Orders from the boss man to have a lie in and rest day to make sure I'm properly recovered from the weekend. I wanted to do a session but I know this is the right call, especially with the brief injury scare last week.
