Had a chance this afternoon to get an x ray before seeing the leg specialist.
Xray confirmed that I had no break at all. But...
The leg Dr pressed his finger on the pain spot and I grimaced in pain.
I said did you press the muscle, he said no the bone.
He said 100% certain that I have a stress fracture but to confirm it I am booked for an MRI on thursday.
I also have an appointment with a Dr who is a sports physician who I happened to go to school with years ago. He is going to help with getting me back out on the track as soon as possible without the pain.
So if anyone wants a copy I will soon have an ultrasound, xray and an MRI of my lower leg.
When Buck Rogers gets here in the 25th century can we do all these at once, please.
So no city to surf for me this year. I want to keep running long term so I am not prepared to gamble with my legs for one race.
I may get to the Lake half but I doubt it. More likely late September after my altitude training camp at Mt Hutt(NZ) skiing and golfing.
I'll be joining Mr Dark and the guide dogs at the finish cheering for Striders and Cool Runners of course.
