Just been for an ultra sound scan to identify my mystery lump.
Good news and bad news.
Good news - it's nothing to worry about from a general health perspective.
Bad news - its caused by running and I need to stop running completely for two weeks for it to go away and get better or it might get worse.
So the on, off Wilmslow HM is finally definitively OFF.
I'm about to google to try and recall the proper technical terms but he talked about my periostal a lot which is the skin around your bone and it being thickened due to possibly a minor strain of one of my muscles. EDIT: Periosteal edema which is Stage 1 of 4 stages - stage 4 being a stress fracture.
If it doesn't go away in two weeks of no running then he would want to do a full MRI to check if the bone marrow was damaged which he said would be a pre stress fracture.
So back to triathlon training which he encouraged.
EDIT: So after all these weeks of keeping my Jantastic score going it's now totally stuffed.
