Moan time. Injured my foot last week, I thought it was a stress fracture, as did my doctor, but nothing showed up in the X-rays. I've not run all week and my foot was feeling less sore, so yesterday I went in my cross trainer and my foot is painful again. Now in addition to that the small of my back is twinging. Getting fed up with this, I don't run great distances, 10k is my max and yet every so often I have to stop due to an injury. Is there anything realistically that can be done to reduce the risk of injury, or is it a fact of life for runners?
