Fortunately, it was a complete fracture, and there was no displacement of movement of the bone. And, since I haven't run in two weeks or so, you could already see evidence of healing.
But, am now in a walking boot for the next 4 weeks. And, the visiting orthopod suggests between 2 and 3 months before running again. Turns out, due to the location of the fracture, it's susceptible to re-fracturing if too much stress is put on it too soon. So, looks like my winter is shot.
Now, need to find some way to try to stay fit while I heal. Am going to try elliptical and stational bike to see if I can do them in the boot. Sure hope so. And, expect to be able to do many of my normal core and stenghtning exercises.
Here's my fashionalble new non-running footwear:

So, even though it may be a while..................see you on the roads, tracks and trails
