I'm Back in the Saddle!

Hey oh, oh eh Guys!

I just had my leg examined by my orthopedist. My X-ray's are negative. My leg is not broken!

Basically, I have a huge amount of scar tissue over the old fracture site. This is the area that has been giving me trouble. I knew I had scar tissue there because I can feel it. It has not bothered me during marathon training and running easy. 

However, over the past few weeks I have increased my paces. My leg was happily plodding along at 7 pace. However, at 6 pace and faster my leg was getting cranky. That's because I'm really stretching that area on toe off. 

So, I need to suck it up and keep going! I need to run harder and break up the scar tissue. Pile on the massage. Poke it with an ice pick! 

I can't tell you the peace of mind this gives me. It has been so stressful to run knowing that I was possibly breaking my leg again.

So onward!!

Thank you for all your kind messages of support. You guys rock! Hopefully I will too!!!
