Last year I was diagnosed via MRI with a stress fracture in my shin. The specialist I saw told me to rest until all pain had gone for at least three weeks and then get in touch with him and he would advise me on how best to get back to running.
He said when you walk you put your body's weight on each foot, but when you run you put eight times your body's weight on each foot, so said I would have to build back up gradually.
I emailed him to ask for the advice and basically he has gone awol. I am chasing him, but in the meantime I thought RW might help as everyone here is so knowledgeable!
How should I start? Apart from slowly, obviously! Does anyone have any suggestions on how to start again - ie what would be too much? Don't want to do too much too soon - that's how I got the damn fracture in the first place.
