    So sorry to hear. Take care. Here's to healing -- fast and complete, although it may require patience. Thanks for your support on my race! So hoping you can get out there again in the not too distant future. -Marsha

    Bummer! emoticon

    Take advantage of the summer! An unplanned rest period can bring you back stronger than you were before.

    Take the time to train mentally.

    It will go quickly!

    Major bummer!! Been there, done that, it sucks. I used the time to do more upper body workouts, just to be doing something. Don't sink into the lake.

    Bummer, indeed. It's hard to deal with the "absolutely nothing" phase. I hope we both get past it as soon as possible.

    I'll say "that's a bummer!" My daughter joined track in HS this spring and in the first two weeks she had shin splints that wouldn't resolve. Ended up being a stress fracture. She is healing but was very disappointed. The orthopedist recommended water jogging and biking for her. Wish we had access. Hope you are fully healed in record time and back to doing the activities you enjoy.

    I am so sorry, do you think it happened during the marathon?

    Take it easy! I've started swimming a little just as an alternative and to create an active recovery on rest days. Check out water jogging, might offer an alternative....
