I can not say anything for sure without examining your foot and seeing x-rays. First I would ask if you had posed these questions to your doctor.

Having said all that, it is not un usual for a fracture to take many weeks and months to fully heal. It is a mistake to implay that a fracture is completely healed in everyone at 6 weeks. People all heal differently.

Usually I will recommend returning to cycling or swimming before running, as it is less traumatic on the foot. You might want to consider wearing a sturdy lace up boot, such as a Redwing boot for support.

Good luck and hang in there.
