Baby toe, right foot. And if you're keeping track, this is the third time I've broken bones in my right foot: Broken Bones #1, Broken Bones #2. This time though it really, really sucks!
I know what you're thinking...he did something stupid while running. This time it was not a running injury, even though the result is the same: No running until healed. 10 - 14 days according to webmd.com. No, this happened while I was walking through the living room in the dark Monday morning. The irony? I was going to turn on the lamp beside the sofa when I slammed my right foot into the the wooden base of the ottoman.
Ouch! Or rather, @$%#$%@! I new immediately it was broken. And what that meant to my running.
Taped up, foot up, iced on and off to keep the swelling down. No running. I know the drill!
Until next time...
