So…..I just completed my first half marathon…..it was amazing! Long, grueling and crazy training. Fiance has put up with my insanity for the last 12 weeks 🙂
He’s also put up with a dislocated hip and knee issues with me, he’s so patient as my body fails me.
I took two days of rest……I mean after long runs you always have aches and pains right? Had a weird twinge of pain in the inner arch of my foot and outer ankle……I kept on trucking last week, only running 2.5-3 miles every other day and the pain never let up…….
Looked at my foot saturday……it was swollen and slightly bruised, hurt to put weight on it.
So my nurse mother and medic father (both runners) are giving me the evil eye as they suspect a stress fracture and so is my Fiance when I said I wanted to run in a race this weekend…..They told me not to run all week and if it is still swollen and bruised they will drag my ass to the doctor 🙁
I haven’t ran in 4 days……I am bumming big time.
Any other bees dealt with stress fractures?? What was your recovery time??
