I've searched the forum but can't seem to find an answer to the following: DS has his appointment to USNA for class of 2018. Sustained injury during current lacrosse season and diagnosed with MRI as a "stress injury" (not fracture) to one lower leg. The prescription is complete rest of lower body for 7 weeks...another MRI to ensure complete healing so there won't be any issues at reporting time. Assuming, for argument's sake, he is cleared and that things go as planned he will only be able to work out upper body, swim, stationary bike from now to virtually time to report. How big of a disadvantage will this be not having the time to be in running, endurance shape when he shows up? Not anything he can do about it, of course, but how big a detriment will this be? He's just trying to get in the right frame of mind to have to deal with that. Any and all counsel is, as always, appreciated. Best to all.
