Just wondered if anyone has any experience with pubic stress fractures?
I was diagnosed in October (after an 01:25 PB in Dublin half-marathon
) and it's driving me crazy!
I haven't run for five months and stopped cycling as well as that seemed to aggravate it. Instead, I've been desperately trying to maintain my fitness with low impact activities like aqua jogging, swimming, elliptical cross trainer and hiking.
The thing is, it still feels sore after exercise. I had an X-ray yesterday and the doctor tells me the bone is healing but he doesn't seem to know a whole lot about it (apparently it's the first one he's seen in 30 years).
So I don't know whether to ignore the soreness and keep going with the low impact exercises or just rest? I mean, I don't want to delay my recovery by exercising but I don't want to unnecessarily lose base fitness either - I've already gained 4 kilos since I stopped running
I'd appreciate any advice on this, especially from anyone whose been through the same thing and come out the other side.
