After I had pain during my run on October 18, I took a full two weeks off from running. I didn’t intend to take two weeks off, but it just happened that way. I did go hiking on Soapstone Mountain in Shenipsit State Forest with my dad for his birthday two weekends ago. It was… Continue reading Hiking and Rest
I should say I *think* that "The Pain" has returned. On Monday morning, one of the exercises we did with my trainer was dips between two boxes. But since most of us aren't that strong yet, we used a resistance band under our legs to make it easier. Except the resistance band was right on… Continue reading The Pain Returns

I still have another 2.5 weeks until I see… Continue reading Returning to Low Impact Activity
I had my first follow-up orthopedic appointment this morning. It's been 5+ weeks since the pain first began and 4+ weeks since I got the boot, the crutches, and the grade 1 anterior tibial stress fracture diagnosis. So how's it been? Weeks 1-3 As I wrote about earlier, the first 3 weeks on crutches were… Continue reading Healing, Slowly But Surely
