So, the past few months have been mostly about recovery from what I think was a stress fracture in my left shin. I’ve taken things pretty slowly, but am back to running regularly outdoors.
The worst of the injury was on January 6. I’m sure I’d probably already done the damage, but that run (just 16 minutes) was excruciating. Actually, the run was only tough – the walk home from the end of the run was the excruciating part. It was a full-out limping, “I’m not sure I can make it the three blocks” experience. I iced the shin when I got home but, somehow, that only made it feel worse. And, for four days afterward, I could still barely walk.
