Doc thought I had possible torn the peroneal tendons -- weren't we surprised to find a sfx on the top of my calcaneus on the MRI. MRI also showed the tendons inflammed -- but probably b/c they are trying to protect the fracture site. I'm in the boot for 6 weeks -- doc says I have to be careful b/c if it fractures completely he'll need to do surgery to get the bone fragments out of the joint. ugh. So I'm stuck on the darn bike and aqua jogging -- both of which I despised this winter when I did them for 6+ weeks.
I'm so annoyed b/c I take Vit D and calcium supplements, had my blood levels checked in January when I had my first sfx (they were fine then - probably are GREAT now), normal bone density scan, normal BMI 21 (18.5 is the low end of normal), very good diet, 2 servings of caffeine a day.... what the heck?!? AND, my marathon training program was very low mileage (peak of 35 mpw) because I also teach two high level step aerobics classes a week and one kettlebell class (minimal impact) week --- so I was very careful of my body!!
AND of course now I have the marathon bug and want to do a Pfitz 18/55 program for my next marathon but am worried my body won't take it -- plus it is going to take me so long to build up to that kind of mileage. I had really been hoping to have a strong winter base of 35 mpw before even starting the Pfitz program for a June 6 marathon!
Whine whine whine!!!!!
Anyone else have a calcaneus sfx??? Advice, tips, support welcome!!
My dogs are fast, not me
