Yup that will be my permanent moto for the next 6 weeks. Yup results are in....I have a mild stress fracture and tendinitis. The stress fracture is the part that shocked us all because of where it is. I do not have pain there. The pain is in the ankle where the tendon issues are.
So...no I did not jog a few times yesterday while spectating the race...I mean YES I DID and I WON't do it again!
I believe that as I was ignoring the pain in the shin all summer long that I started to change my gait causing the tendon issues in my ankle. Lesson learned...listen to your body AS SOON AS it starts to hurt.
So...Bri searched craigslist for a cheap stationary bike for me to use. He found one for $50 I will probably call about it soon. I will need it once the weather gets BAD. For now I will be using my bike on the path. I might (and this is a big might) go to the YMCA and use the pool. I would probably take a quick turn towards an elliptical before I choose to do that though.
So here is how it is.....I was stupid big time. I was so focused on my distances and getting all my runs in that I just tried to solve the problem with calf sleeves. It helped it feel better for a little bit. I got through the marathon with no pain issues. But the half marathon was another story that was a short 5 days later. So now this is what I have caused....no blaming it on anything else but myself.
Got any other no pounding workouts for me?? I also cannot do Zumba which I am also bummed about.
PS...like the new text on my pictures....yes I finally updated to a new fancy laptop. Mine was 7 years old and did not have paint! So I am slowly catching up with all of you! Give me awhile to figure out all these things on this laptop! Next up is still the iPhone 4s...just don't want to order it online.
