This was me a couple of weeks ago. I stubbed my little toe on a box in my office. It hurt...more than the usual stubbed toe. That night I thought I had popped it back into place. However, 1 1/2 weeeks later, it still hurt and was swollen. After an x-ray, by technitions young enough for me to have recently taught, my Dr. determined I had a fracture...a healing fracture...but a fracture nontheless.
Ah! This meant no running for a week...or two. Ah!
I made it little over a week just doing yoga and some stationary bike work. It no longer hurts all the time, but I still keep it taped, especially when exercising.
I'm so torn because obviously I want it to heal. But I need to begin training for the October marathon my Dad, sister and I are going to run. So, slowly we will go till it is healed. I've done just 2 1/2 miles runs on the treadmill this week, plus a little beach biking.
