I went to the doctor on Monday (7/6) and I still have a fracture. It appears to be smaller, but still it is there. I went in hoping for the best, and so did the people around me, but it is still there.
So I go back in a month and have it checked again. I will continue to take Vit D supplements, Ca supplements, and use my friend the the Exogen 4000+ Ultrasound Bone Healing System.
I will continue to swim, pull only, lift weights, and bike a little. Bike very little and very easy when I do. Hopefully, next time I go in there is no fracture and I can start running and biking.
I just need to be patient, which is getting harder.
I have posted my stats for the last 6 months, including my weight. Weight has gone up a little, to be expected. I am getting a decent amount of weight lifting in, almost entirely upper body. The swim is continuing as it should. The last 8 weeks has been entirely pulling, very, very little kicking. My shoulders do not hurt as much as I would expect. Maybe all this pulling is not as detrimental as I thought it would be.
Of course, I have had to redo my goals. Hopefully, I can pull some of them off by the end of the year. I am going to pretty much take my goals from 2009 and use them for 2010.
