I am in good spirits today.
Everytime someone (who's not my doctor) sees me injured again and tells me to stop running, the more excited I get about getting back into running.
things I heard today,
"this is a sign."
"God is telling you to find another sport."
Now, many are well meaning too with concern about why I got injured again,
"Something is going on."
"Something's not right, you should not be getting another stress fracture."
Now, although I believe that my erratic training schedule plus my technique and form caused my stress fractures, I realize that I am NOT my own doctor.
I am taking this seriously; I am seeing an endocrinologist as well .. had some labs done last week: ionized calcium, parathyroid hormone, spep, and upeo.
So we'll see.
But I'm not worried. I am focused on healing properly and getting back in shape properly so that I can fulfill my goals.
It is mainly for me. But yes, proving naysayers wrong would be icing on the cake.
