And it felt so good!!!!! I went out for 30 minutes at a 3 min/run 2min/walk combination. I was so happy to get out there again. I was very suprised how HARD the first couple of sets were. Am I really that out of shape??? My tibia felt fine, where my stress fracture was located, however, my poor feet!!! I could tell my well worn calouses (how do you spell that word??) have faded away and left me with some sore spots on my feet but that than that, besides sucking wind, I felt pretty good.<br><br>
It's good to be back!!!

(Almost missed my queue!)
<blockquote></blockquote><i><b>Callus:</b> <b>1.</b> A localized firm thickening of the upper layer of skin as a result of repetitive friction. A callus on the skin of the foot has become thick and hard from rubbing (as a result of repetitive friction). Calluses of the feet may lead to other problems such as serious infections. Shoes that fit well can keep calluses from forming on the feet.</i>
<blockquote></blockquote><i><b>2.</b> The hard new bone substance that forms in an area of bone fracture. Bony callus is part of the bone repair process.</i>
<blockquote></blockquote><i>Also called, less often, a callosity. Both callus and callosity are derived from the Latin callum meaning thick skin.</i>
Note also...
<blockquote><p>Main Entry: 1cal·lous<br>
Function: </p></blockquote><i>adjective</i><br>
Etymology: Middle English, from Latin <i>callosus,</i> from <i>callum, callus</i> callous skin<br>
Date: 15th century
<blockquote><p>1 a</p></blockquote><b>:</b> being hardened and thickened b<b>:</b> having calluses <<i>callous</i> hands>2 a<b>:</b> feeling no emotion b<b>:</b> feeling or showing no sympathy for others <b>:</b> <a href="http://www.m-w.com/dictionary/hard-hearted" target="_blank"><span style="color:#0000FF;">hard-hearted</span></a> <a <i>callous</i> indifference to suffering>
<blockquote><p>— cal·lous·ly </p></blockquote><i>adverb</i>
<blockquote><p>— cal·lous·ness </p></blockquote><i>noun</i>

So... I think "calluses" would have been most appropriate.<br><br>
And great job getting back out there - it'll all come back before you know it!!
