Went to a runner friendly GP yesterday and my physio today and both suspect a stress fracture. I'm not getting the scans done though as I am trying to hang on to my $200 for Korea where I'm going in 2 weeks time.
All signs are pointing to a stressie though which means an enforced lay off of about 6 - 8 weeks. Hopefully towards New Years I can start doing some hiking in the mountains around Korea. I was really hoping to do some running in the snow over there, but anyway - I'll probably be inside a gym on the bike or rower instead.
Shit way to end the year, just need to keep the fitness up and not get too fat!
