How long did you wear a boot? 

I was told I don't need to wear the boot anymore after one month.  Pretty much only wore it for a week since it took a month to figure out what the problem was.  I should've asked doc while I was there if I wore it would it speed up the healing process at all.

How did you figure out it was a stress fracture, and what did it feel like?

I wasn't until I was able to get a MRI could they figure out for certain what the problem was.  Started out with excruciating pain if I put weight on it and pretty much hurt any time I moved.  After about a week it just felt like my foot was broken but x-rays didn't show anything. Came on pretty suddenly with no warning signs I noticed.

I expected to hurt after the marathon, and I did but there was nothing that I was immediately alarmed about. Since then, the foot pain that popped up after the marathon has not really gone away.

Stress fractures are one of the most feared injuries in the realm of endurance sports and they are also one of the most common sidelining injuries that such athletes face.

Earlier this year I had 2 stress fractures on my left foot. Both requiring 6 weeks rest. I am finally running injury free. How likely am I to get a stress fracture in the same location?

Yesterday I ran 10 miles. At mile 7 it started feeling sore. At mile 9.5 I got a shooting pain and walked the last 1/2 mile. I have a half Ironman to do in a week and a half. What are my chances?

Is there anything that I can do to lessen the chances of stress fractures. I have had no luck with the doctors I have seen. Some have advised orthotics, some say there is nothing that can be done.
