Well, my plans to run a 10K on Labor Day are out. I am 99% sure I have a stress fracture in my lower shin. I haven't run in two weeks, and it it still hurting some, so I know it's not just a minor injury. I haven't gone to the doctor because I know they will prescribe rest for 6-8 weeks, so I am just going to prescribe it for myself. I'll be able to start running again about the time the kids start school, which will be much easier anyway.

I am disappointed about missing the 10k, but the Disney Princess Half-Marathon is my ultimate goal, so resting now will enable me to train. Also, when I start back, I am going to go very slowly. I have been pushing to go faster, and I am sure that's why I am hurt. I am not going to worry about time when I start back; I am just going to take it easy and enjoy it!

Oh, I am so sorry to hear that! But it's important to heal so I hope it does so quite quickly!

Ouch! I hope it heals well and you are running pain free again soon.

Hope you heal quickly! By the way, if you are interested in a great cookbook for planning meals (from your previous post), try the Weight Watchers cookbooks. I plan lots of our meals from it b/c the recipes use mostly raw/fresh ingredients (no canned soups, veggies, etc) and are delicious. Everything I have made from it has been delicious. Ryan got it for me at Sam's from $10 - it's a great way to eat even if you aren't trying to lose weight.
