I've had 4 stress fractures (or possible stress fractures) from running. What have I learned?
-I typically come back stronger
-I miss running when I can't
-It teaches me a balance........for a while anyhow
-I can stay fit even without running. Biking, walking, and spinning are good substitutes
It's been 4 weeks since I've been back running. The first two were not great and I considered having to take another extended break. But a quick trip to the doc reassured me that I was getting there and just needed to be a bit more patient.
The last couple weeks I've felt 99%. Some really solid workouts and I'm back to my somewhat normal running level.
Next up..........I am dying to get back on the trails, so I signed up for Landsford Canal 50K on July 16th! Here is to coming back to the race circuit!
