L Foot, Stress Fracture

2008-01-16 – 2008-06-28

Grade: 1

Check log for 1/6/08. This has been going on longer than I thought. Note - I think I remember running up a hill at that meet on 1/12 and bent far forward on one foot. Could that have been the source?

i am going to mark this as complete and hope for the best. I feel some weakness in the ankle and some "clicking" when I rotate it, but I think the 5 weeks off running has helped. I was never completely convinced of the stress fracture diagnosis - this felt more like the tendonitis I had in my knee.
Note from 7/19/2008 - Exercising this ankle w/ focus on strengthening it ("alphabet" plus 20 seconds raised foot) has helped a lot
