My toe that is. Monday Edith and I were doing a little cookie baking and a smashed my toe on her learning tower and when I folded over in pain I looked down to see my toe (second to the last) was a little bent. As the day went on walking became harder and my toe became more swollen and more purple. Fast forward a few days and my toe is still bruised and still in lots of pain when walking or when my littles step on my feet – didn’t realize how often they did that until I did this.
So after talking to my PT I went to the doctors to see if I should get it x-rayed and was told it was just a break, tape it together, take this homeopathic bone repair remedy and don’t run until there is no pain. I asked what that looked like in days or weeks and she said 2 or so weeks but it could be longer depending on how things heal. That being said I think I am going to have to walk my next 5k and as for my 10k we will see where things are in 2 weeks. Trying not to feel down about this but I was pumped to be back to running again after my knee issues and now here we are again. At this point I might not be running any races until 2016.
Ouch! I’ve broken that toe before too and you never realize how useful it is until you can’t use it properly! I wish you a very speedy recovery!! Lots of ice and elevation worked for me. I also had crutches from a foot injury that I used when I knew I would be standing or moving a lot. Two weeks is pretty spot on though. Oh, and ibprofin!

Oh my gosh – I can only imagine how frustrating and painful that must be

Oh dear! I hope it heals quickly. Injury right before something you’ve been training for sucks so much. I am just impressed that you didn’t lose it when it happened and your daughter was in there and cooking was happening. I’d have said a few choice words that would have likely scared my kiddo. I’m not good with pain!
Oh no!! Sad about the injury but is it wrong I snickered when of course this is when you notice how often your Littles literally step all over your toes heh
Ouch! I think I’ve broken every one of my toes at one point or another, so I know ho painful it is. I hope it heals quickly!
