You get a stress fracture from working out. Yes, I'm in a lovely boot for I'm hoping just 4-6 weeks. I really hate this darn thing. Just when I try I start working out and getting back into my healthy groove, my bone becomes a jerk. It's been three weeks on Monday. I go for an xray this week to make sure everything is healing. Obviously, my bones know that I'm not 16, now if my face would figure that out and stop breaking out, that would be awesome!
