I am dealing with a somewhat uncommon stress fracture in my fibula about two inches from knee. Most of the info I see if for the ankle area. I am in a boot for 4 weeks. I don't know why I am having this issue. I have run consistently 160 miles a month since Sept. I usually have 5 - 10 mile, 2 - 15 miles, 1- 20 miles a month. There was nothing I changed. In Oct 1st I started wearing zero drop shoes with no problems. I have a very neutral gait with higher arches. Dec 1st I bought a pair of Newton's and starting swapping in and out with my zero drops. No big deal. Calves were tired during the transition but nothing major. I do have osteoporosis and my age is 45. I know that does increase the risk. Any ideas why this happened? I have never really had an injury. Could it have been the shoes? Need to figure it out before I start running again if that ever happens!!!!
