I am now fairly confident that I have turned the corner of my long 6 months slump. I "ran" - parkrun in 44 minutes this past Saturday and walked briskly with a friend for one hour on the next day. No pain or discomfort at all really either during or after. I can still feel the fracture in my foot and during my run I did take it very very easily running a little and walking - listening very closely to it. I am planning on a two pronged approach over the next couple of months - limiting my outside running to only parkrun and slowly increasing my time by a minute each week while running a little on the treadmill twice a week increasing form the 10 minutes I can easily do right now by a minute each week. We are going to have a hot and humid summer this year so this slow progression suits that and I do have a 10K to do ( to finish one way or another) in early April and parkrun in Southampton in May - plus a jog across the Brooklyn bridge in New York in June - after that, I am sure that I will be ready to go!!! - 12 months after my accidental fall.
