Life, Running

Injury Update: Tibia Story Time


Life, Running

Hi Friends:) A few weeks ago, I was diagnosed with a tibial stress fracture, and I was pretty bummed out about it. My initial visit to my orthopedist was the second week in June, and he’d told me then and there to stop running and stop spinning. I’d honestly thought that he’d say it’d all […]
