What Happened to My Toe?

Friday morning, I dragged myself out of bed and to work at 8am. When I got there, I was told to go home and come back at 4pm because someone was sick and I had to cover for them 2nd shift. BLAH. I hate when that happens. I could have slept in!

I blame my job... because if I had been at work, I wouldn't have jammed my pinky toe on the couch leg that afternoon.

And I know, I KNOW my family and boyfriend think I'm a total drama queen. But it hurt... BAD. And it hurt all day yesterday. And it hurt every time I took a step. So it wasn't just your normal stubbed toe.

Today, it STILL hurts. I had intentions of signing up for a Thanksgiving morning 4 miler, but now I'm not so sure. I need to wait this out for a bit and see just how serious this is (it would NOT be the first time I broke a toe). I'll wait for the swelling to go down, then take it for a test run.

My Dad ran another 5k this morning (I've created a monster!). He finished somewhere around 26:20. That's faster than I've EVER run 3.1 miles! Congrats, Dad!

I need to get back in the pool. I haven't swam or biked since my last triathlon (September!). Ryan and I might take advantage of the nice weather and go for a ride tomorrow.

I'm realizing that if I ever want to run an olympic distance triathlon, I need to keep my momentum during the Winter. That's way easier said than done. But I did ask for a lot of training gear for Christmas (including road tires and aero bars!), so what better way to motivate a lazy triathlete?

But for now, I'll stay inside with my swollen toe elevated. Stupid couch! (One of many reasons Ryan and I went couch shopping this evening (where we realized that comfort is WAY more important than style.))

you're not a drama queen.

Great time for your Dad's 5K! I'm just happy with finishing them these days, speed is on the back burner!
Good luck with the toe, having a broken one sucks-can't do anything about it but wait.

Ouch! Brokey toes hurt, no lie!

It always pisses me off when I get up crazy early only to find out that my flight is late. Annoying.

I wonder if you broke your toe? Sucky thing is that they really don't do much for it even if you did. Blah. Hope it feels better!

I hurt my big toe - years ago - and it still hurts at time. No drama! Congrats to your dad and I hope you can run your Thanksgiving race.

Lets see the damage and then we can determine if you are a drama queen!!! :)

Hope your toe gets better soon! I did that years ago to my toe and now it just always sticks out a little and requires special care. That's cool about your Dad and his time--sub 25 can't be far off.
