tricialitt - apparently very low vitamin D was a major cause, I had been running every day but I had been doing that for years. I was just wondering what to do when I get back to full fitness and maybe everyday is not a such a good plan for an oldie of 58 . . . maybe try walking on the non running days next week.
I’ve recently started running again after having a metatarsal stress fracture in early May, the consultant at the hospital advised me not to run every day, so currently I am running every other day and thankfully so far so good, it’s great to be back running again. Previously I used to run every day, not great distances but I used to run every morning before work so I’m wondering in the next few weeks whether I should try to get back to that. I would be interested to know how often other mature runners run, I’m 58 and after nearly 6 months off I'm slightly nervous about over doing it and getting another injury but then again I would really like to get back to how things were before the stress fracture.
