Avulsion fracture?

Posted: 08/06/2015 at 20:18

Hi all, I've been plagued by what I thought was shin splints since March time, ran a sub 3 marathon mid April and since then I've been running in pain, taken time off hoping it will clear and now...stopped altogether. I last ran over a week ago. Anyhow, I did some walking with the folks on Saturday to find bruising around my shin on Sunday. Not normal....I went and got an x-ray on the Sunday to find that I actually have an Avulsion Fracture (not a stress fracture) which is basically a bone fracture occuring when a fragment of bone tears away from the main mass of bone. In my case, the tibia. The Doctor basically said that I would need to see a sports specialist to get further advice, but it sounds like through research that it heals very well without surgical intervention and through rest, icing and ant-inflammatory drugs, the fracture can be treated. 

 

Has anybody else come across this before?

Shin splints?

Posted: 01/06/2015 at 22:26

I think I know the answer to this (rest!) but I just wanted some advice, if possible.

Leading up to a spring marathon and really ramped up my mileage. I ran in slight discomfort up to a couple of weeks before the marathon but it then become more painful, so I took a week off before and with rest, it was much better leading to a sub 3 marathon! Plenty of icing and ibuprofen, but its definitely still causing discomfort post marathon. OK if I take a day off, but hurts if I try to run successively. The pain is to the inner shin bone. I wear orthotics and have been injury free for some time, so this isn't a recurring issue. Does this sound like shin splints? My left leg is fine.

Took a fortnight off completely at the start of May but after a couple of runs the pain returned! Again, last week I took the week off, ran last night, did 6 miles and my shin is sore again.

Any advice/possible action plan would be great, thanks guys for your help.

Plan is to take a fortnight off completely as I'm going away on holiday anyway!

Hi all,

Rotting timing but the dreaded word for me - injury. I was hoping to seek some advice if possible.

I've had a shin niggle for a few weeks now. I've been taking ibuprofen and to be honest I've taken the typical runners attitude of 'it'll ride out'. Well, it's the inside of my shin on my right leg that it hurting. Did 8 miles last night and it was okay after the first few minutes. Tonight, however, was a very sorry 3 miles.

I'm thinking it's probably sensible to skip some of my schedule now and rest. Like most runners though, were afraid of losing our edge by not running! If I rested until Tuesday and then tried again do you think that would be reasonable. I really think it's probably over-use/inflammation.

Hi all,

 

Shoe dilemma. I use Brooks Defyance 7 which are now well worn, a few weeks back I noticed that they were unavailable therefore opted (probably naively) to buy some Mizuno Wave Riders. Now, I've since purchased some Brooks Defyance 8 which are due to arrive tomorrow and debating over which footwear to wear for the marathon.

 

Any advice would be appreciated!

Hi all,

Hoping for a bit of advice. I'm in the dilemma of following the 12 week P&D schedule but have entered a few races from now until Manchester Marathon, the first one being a half marathon next week. I realise I'm going to have to sacrifice some weekly mileage so I'm not turning up to the race completely ruined, so I was wondering what you would do, for example which sessions you would reduce/drop from this weeks scheduled plan;

Mon-Rest

Tue-13mi MLR

Wed-15mi MLR

Thu- 5mi Recovery

Fri-10mi LT with 5 miles 15k/HM pace

Sat - 5mi Recovery

Sun - 18mi LR

With Sunday's Half Marathon in mind, I plan to do an extra 5 'warm down' miles to take it to 18. I planned on resting tomorrow (Mon) having done 20 today. Tuesday I planned on doing a LT session, or I tend to mix it up and do some mile or kilometre reps. Wednesday I plan doing 15 miles and possibly the 13 mile slot on the Thursday. Having said that,  I think with the race coming up, should I drop the 13 miler on Thursday? Drop down to lower mileage/or just run the full 13 very easy? I then plan to do 5 recovery miles on Friday, and rest Saturday before the (hilly) half marathon  on Sunday. Does that sound reasonable? Naturally I hope to be getting in as much mileage as possible, but hope to turn up to Sunday's race feeling fresh and raring to go!

Morning all! Had a bit of a disaster (typical me) morning. Attempted to a parkrun at Bradford, which I've only done once or twice. In trying a different route, Siri led me astray and I ended up missing the bloody thing. 25+mile round trip for nothing. As if Bradford wasn't already depressing enough!

Anyhow, I got home and did 10 very muddy miles on the Chevin (big hill) in eerie, crisp conditions with 1 000 ft elevation. Saw a deer too! Lovely!

Happy running this weekend everyone. Is anyone racing?

 

Can anyone recommend accommodation around Manchester or perhaps farther afield? I' don't mind being a bit out to avoid extortionate hotel costs!
