Calcaneus Stress Fracture Training Log: Six Weeks In, Six Weeks Out

This week completes six weeks of not running and six weeks out.  Twelve weeks ago, on March 1, I got my calcaneus stress fracture. In the coming weeks, life completely changed but not because of my broken foot. Sometimes it felt trivial to talk about a broken foot when the world was a mess. Honestly, it’s gone by fast.

Injury Log Week 11: Trucking Along

Another week of running down and for the most park, I felt fine, just tired. As I’ve mentioned, eventually I’m going to stop blogging about my calcaneus stress fracture and recovery. Truthfully, I worry (for no reason), when I stop blogging about it, I’ll jynx it and it will come back.  Which I fully realize is an irrational thought.
