Thanks for the comment on my blog! I know that I won't be running the Half; if I can run/walk it, I will. If I can walk it, I will. If I can't do either, I won't and I'll have to live with it. At least stress fractures generally heal relatively quickly, completely and without complications. Unlike tendon injuries which have a nasty habit of hanging around for way too long.
As for why? Probably a combination of my ramping my distance back in early December after coming off a round of Insanity where I had cut back my distance quite a bit combined with a really good bashing on a stool in the middle of the night in early December - I ended up with a pretty nasty bruise right where the fracture is now. I've had quite a few people who have been running for a long time comment that my stride looks good, but I've been thinking that getting a stride analysis done wouldn't be a bad idea...
Hiii! Thank you for the comment on my blog! I remember you from last year's Princess too! :) Good luck with your training over the next 5 weeks and hopefully we'll both be cheers-ing to our PRs after the race :) 1988 days ago
Thanks for the blog comment! I'm super jealous you get to run the Princess! Originally, that was what I planned on doing, but my daughter has a cheer competition in Dallas that weekend. I'm sure it will be amazing!!!! :) 1997 days ago
