I worked out on the elliptical again today and it was great! I am feeling stronger. I’m not as worried about having pain. I’m not even sore. My quads are a bit sore from being used again, but my stress fracture not at all.
I wonder how long it will take to get back into shape? I hope not long. I can’t wait until I move to the treadmill next week and to get back to my previous running self.
Being realistic though, I think I will push off my half marathon plans. I just don’t want to rush things. I certainly don’t want to deal with another stress fracture. Though I am more confident with each work out, I know the worry, the nervousness about hurting myself again will stick around for awhile. But maybe that’s the best way to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
