Met with Dr. Newman this morning. I have to take another 4 weeks completely off of running and then it’ll be a slow progression back to full mileage. So realistically we’re looking at another 2-3 months before I’m back to 10 miles a day. Apparently a stress reaction in the femur is one of the worst places to have one, second only to the hip, because of the femur being one of the strongest bones in the body. Dr. Newman said if it was in my shin or something my recovery time would be less, but because it’s the femur I have to take more time off. So that’s awesome. On the bright side we caught it before it turned into a stress fracture, so the recovery time in comparison to that is significantly less. 

In the meantime, I need to take calcium and vitamin D supplements, cross train and strengthen my back, butt and hamstrings. That will help me to prevent it from recurring when I do start running again.

Bike: 1 hour, alternated between 14 and 16. HR 136, distance 11.49.

Pool: Pool ran with Ashley for 30ish minutes, then messed around with core and swimming for another 30. Then went back to my house and did 10 minutes of abs.

I was tired again. Ended up accidentally taking a 3 hour nap... whoops. Went late to the pool and just called it at that. Might be good to have a little breather anyway so I don’t get tired of doing the same thing every day. Warmup, 80% for 25 minutes, 6x1 minute hard 30 seconds rest, cool down. I’m sore from yesterday? Probably from the lunges in weights. 

On the bright side I hardly feel any pain in my femur now! Squats hurt it, but I no longer feel it when I’m walking. Except for occasionally on hills or stairs, but even then much less pain than before. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow morning to determine a recovery plan, so I’ll know how much longer I’ll be out. I hope it’s not too much longer.

Bike: An hour on the stationary bike, alternated between level 17 and 19 for resistance and average HR 133. “Distance” was 10.17 miles.

Weights: Warmups, 4x12 walking lunges, 4x12 push-ups, 2x15 hamstring march, 2x7 pull-ups (2 bands), 2x12 alternating V-ups, 3x10 (R, L, Both) calf raises, 3x15 hamstring curls. 

Pool: Warmup, 45 minutes at 60%, cool down. Went in early so I could go to FHE with my boyfriend.

Also, the group of girls I came in with is now down to 4 including me. We started with 12. Granted I took a year off for my mission, so I’m technically a year behind them all, but none of the other girls that left on missions around the same time as me ever came back. Now it’s just me, Maddy, Bino and Brighton. Sad. But at least I can say I’ve stuck it out and don’t plan on ever quitting the team.
