Wicked Toe Injury

I have always had a love/hate relationship with running, but since I completed the 10K, I found that running and surfing is a perfect combination. Throw in some yoga, and I feel awesome. 

In the last couple of weeks, my running workouts and surfing schedule has been awesome. Especially, because I got my new custom board from Locus Surfboards…more on that later ๐Ÿ˜. Everything was going great until, I dropped my metal trash can on my big toe this past week. 

As I watched the instaneous bruise form, my heart sunk. First thought was I broke my toe, second thought was I can’t surf, third thought was I can’t run or workout.  

Trying to be an optimist, I was telling myself it wasn’t as bad as I thought, but when I went to go put on my running shoes, the pain was astronomical.

This injury sidelined me all week. Readers, what do you do when you have an injury?

  1. Listen to the pain! Basically if itโ€™s too sore to use then donโ€™t! It will heal all the faster and youโ€™ll be back to your usual work out quicker.
    In the meantime you can practice hopping or do arm exercises! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Oh noooo I’m so sorry! Last year I opened a door on my big toe, ripped off the nail, and was sidelined from running for a month. I was able to do yoga but only after modifying most of the poses. Have you been able to go to the doctor to get it checked out? I hope it isn’t broken and that you are able to return to your normal schedule soon!

  3. Oh no I hope your toe is better now! I always rest when my body is going through an injury or do what I can without putting pressure on the injury. I also amp up my ginger root intake through smoothies to aid the inflammation! Wishing you well!
