A New Accoutrement.

It goes really well with my wardrobe. :-/

Stress fracture confirmed with a bone scan on Monday. Off of running for 6-8 weeks but could be less because I have a magic bone healing machine. I'm trying not to get my hopes up however. I can bike, I can use the elliptical and pool run. Considering how little I have been running this summer in general, I know I can stay in shape with not any trouble. I'd still rather be running.

I've moved past the teary sad stage to the pissed accepting stage. Have I mentioned I'd rather be running?

Stylish. How did this happen? Is this an old fracture that didn't heal or is this something new?

uh yes. :-? It's not clear actually. I don't have a atypical stress fracture and have a high tolerance for pain evidently. I asked again if it could be a stress fracture last week and after prodding and poking, he really didn't think so but ordered one because I didn't respond to the cortisone shot as expected, I've had the issue for a while and I was worried. Surprise, the bone scan was positive. I'd been running on it all last week and just feeling it mildly like usual. It hadn't been bugging me at work. It's rather frustrating actually.
