    A word of caution to my fellow Daily Milers: This is what happens when you overdo it. Not one, but THREE stress fractures in my right leg. I've had it for four months now, and I'm probab... read more

      Just take it easy and do a lot of swimming and stuff, Dan. Then you won't lose too much. Think it's possible I might be faster than you by the time you're fully recovered? No? I didn't think so either! ;)

      Thanks Dana! There's something about taking care of a newborn that makes running seem unimportant. He certainly keeps us occupied!

      Thanks! I have almost no pain left, although I just got back from my bone scan (over an hour under the scanner!) and the nurse told me that I have a "hyperactivity of bone cells" in my lower right leg. I'll talk to the doctor tomorrow to see exactly what that means. The only thing I could get out of him is that he typically sees this when the bone is trying to heal itself from something.

      great news indeed! now for the hard part - getting back in shape without trying to do it so quickly that I hurt myself again, it's hard to hold myself back when I'm feeling good, but I know I have to to recover properly.

      Well, I finally got my bone scan results today. I have not one, but 3 stress fractures in my lower right leg. The good news is they are beginning to heal, but my hopes of running a marathon before going to Afghanistan in 3 months are pretty dim.

    This was disappointing. I was really hoping that I could handle 2 miles today. I need a good home remedy to make bone injuries heal quicker.

      Have you had xrays or any other tests done to see what exactly is going on?

      I had an x-ray a few days ago, (no results yet) and a bone scan scheduled for Tuesday.

    I'm going to try and run at least 2 miles tomorrow - wish me luck! (just don't tell me to "break a leg", that would be kinda sick...)

    A little better than last time, although I'm not quite ready for a longer distance yet. Still a lot more than I've been able to run in 2 months though!

      pain?

      The pain increased at about the 7 minute mark, I pushed it a couple extra minutes to test my threshold, but definitely without going over the edge. The good news is that as soon as I stopped, the pain subsided quickly. I'll keep doing this every other day or so until I can start running distances again - Hopefully with the knowledge of lessons learned from the past...

    40 minute swim, then 5 minutes of aqua jogging. Felt great!

    another day in the pool, i really should take some swim lessons. When I swim, I probably look like I'm trying not to drown, but hey, at least it's a workout, and I'm not on my bad leg.

      Maybe you should start aqua jogging, then you will look really funny with just your heading bobbing out of the water ;) Good job on your work out.

      I know it took a lot of courage to drop out. Considering all your hard work getting there, I imagine that it was much harder to quit than to continue on. You're a smart cookie and I think you made the right decision. Never forget that you are an awesome runner and a great inspiration!

      Sry to hear that. When you injured yourself a few weeks back, I was afraid you weren't going to heal like you wanted to. I can tell by your posts that swimming and the biking weren't doing it for you. After your first big injury - you got it back quickly, so I expect the same now. Heal well! Take care of that baby thats coming your way. When are you leaving for Afghanistan?

      Sorry, Dave, I'm just now catching up on past online stuff since I was in the field with no internet for 2 weeks following Boston. I go to Afghanistan in August. My new goal is to just complete a marathon before going, without getting hurt again!
