I stopped running about a month ago, as I thought I had a shin splint and thought I could rest, ice, and recover with enough time before my race. I ran 6 miles last week and have been in a lot of pain since then. It even hurts when I am walking in sneakers. I finally went to the doctor and found out that I actually have a stress fracture in my left distal tibia.
My race is in 2 weeks (the NYC olympic tri). Is it a really bad idea to do the race and run through the pain and then let it heal?
