It is tendonitis. Not shin splints. Not a stress fracture. Tendonitis. I suppose that is the good news.
I have to take this big giant horse pill that is an anti-inflammatory twice a day, and I will need to start PT, going 3x/week for 3 weeks.
I must not run for 4 weeks, until I can be seen by the doctor again. That will make a total of about 8 weeks off. Sounds like I will need to start the C25K all over again. It is okay. I know what I'm in for this time, and I will be certain that I won't die before I get to the end.
The good thing is that the doctor is happy that I am concerned about doing some exercises to keep myself healthy. It would be great to drop another 10lbs before I go back to see him.
On a side note, I started swimming at the Y today and I absolutely LOVE it! I had a blast. And I got a good work out on top of it. Next week...cycling. :)
