Broken Fibula Healing Time

I broke my fibula playing ice hockey in November 2007. It was a non-displaced fracture so I was in a boot and on crutches for about 6 weeks. I was running lightly by March, and by April I was playing hockey again with the doctor's O.K. I had no pain.

Recently I started training for a marathon, including running intervals at the track. I am starting to feel twinges of pain at rest, and while it is not painful to run, I am conscious of the fact that thrre is some tightness there.

Am I not healed yet?

Should I stop hard training?

If not, what are the risks that I face?
