So. I've had some shin pain. Very localized. I just thought I was being a wimp, but it's been going on for kind of a while. Like, 3 months while.
Yesterday it hurt a whole lot. So today I went to the orthopedist.
And I have a F&#%ING STRESS FRACTURE.
I cried all the way home. It felt like getting punched in the gut. Here I am, 25 lbs lighter mostly because of running and weight training, both of which are completely off limits for 4-6 weeks.
My awesome husband pointed out that I can still bike and swim, which I needed to work on anyways for a possible run at a tri.
But it STILL SUCKS.
