WAHHHHHHHHH, I dunno if I'm going to make this race! I managed to do 30 mins of cardio yesterday. I started on the stairclimber but after 15 mins I could feel it in my shin, so I switched to the bike and that was OK. For the most part my shins feel OK, except for 1 certain spot right on the bone in my left leg. This tells me that I *may* have a stress fracture. I hope not, but I think I might go to the docs if it's not feeling better by the end of the week. If it is a stress fracture the Sun Run is definitely out because they take quite awhile to heal. I'm just going to keep up with my walking (been doing that daily), strength training, and a half hour on the bike every couple of days. Not much else that I can do :OS

For those who have been offering suggestions, I appreciate it. This injury was totally due to overuse though, and I know that. It's not that I need new shoes, I have new Asics with custom made Orthotics. I was just pushing it too hard, and did too many runs on concrete. It's my own fault. I should know better :OP

Going to the doctor is a GREAT idea. I'm a big believer in that. Hope it's NOT a stress fracture Shrunk. Feel better soon.

If it makes you feel any better (which it won't), I did take something from your lesson. I knew I was pushing myself too hard last week, so I took a breather. I thought of you and your pain, and I eased up a little. Not that that makes it any easier for you! Sorry! :(

Hope it's not a stress fracture. Take care of yourself.

I have a small pain in on of my feet. Right on the bone under my toe. For the last few weeks I've been nursing it like crazy and popping the asprin and extra calcium. In my opinion it has made a difference.

I hope it gets better soon...nothing like shin pain...Ouch!
