Hi! Ive a a question for people who do sport with t1 or t2-i dont know if there would be a difference for Ds with normal-ish blood sugars and non-ds.
I do lots of exercise, mostly running and like cross-fit type strength training. since about march i have been doing mountain races, about 12 to15 km runs through mountainous terrain, really fun. So with this change in running interests, i changed my training, doing lots more hill work.
also in the last couple of months, its been really hot, so my running club has been doing a lot more fartlek/speed series-less mileage but different speeds-spending less time in the heat.
on the 4th july i did a 12 km trail run, some km through sand but otherwise kind of flat. that was a saturday night. monday and tuesday i ran. after training on tues, i went to breakfast with some friends, got driven home 5 minutes away and couldnt walk. i have this stress fracture in my second metatarsal bone.
docs did xrays on the day and then 2 weeks later. things looked good, she said. from the beginning i joined a gym so i could swim, doc ok'd that. wait four more weeks at least to run. continue on the crutches, go by sensations. so i was walking after three weeks, gingerly, but ok. its been over 4 weeks now and i did a 5 mile hike last week and im walking around cuz it feels good/ok/no pain.
so i started doing some indoor cycling/elliptical and some strength training, getting a little pain there now. whats this all about?
has anyone had a stress fracture in metatarsal, with good-ish a1c(7.1)? did you heal as expected? if you run, how long did it take that you could run again?
i know everyone is different and i did ask the bone doc i went to. she said i should heal normally, but just want to get anyones personal experiences with this.
