wow i don't know how i didn't see this post before, but i did basically the exact same thing. hurt my leg a few weeks ago and wasn't sure what was wrong. gave it two weeks off. it was still hurting a bit, but not bad, so took a bunch of advil and headed up the mountain. felt ok for the first few minutes, then made a sharp turn and bam... i was only like 1/4 of the way up the mountain but it must've taken me 20 min to get down. so painful. got some xrays after that and of course it's a fracture. so i def feel your pain. though sadly i dont have a colorado trip to look forward to..
