At the end of September last year I sustained a bad stress fracture during an ultra marathon. Next week I have been given the all clear by my consultant to introduce running into my training, and by Easter should be back to full training.
I'm pretty scared now about getting another fracture, and I'm not really sure how to strike the balance between over doing it and being to cautious, I plan to enter a 35 miler this September. Do you think this is acheivable, and could you give me some guidelines on how quickly I should increase my weekly mileage and intensity?
A recent MRI scan showed that I have a femoral neck stress fracture and labral tear of my left hip after a 50 mile ultra. Can you give me any idea of what to expect during physio in the months following surgery for the labral tear?
