Rewind to Tuesday while I was out for a run——> I was about to enter an intersection and between trying to make eye contact with the car turning right (to make sure they wouldn’t hit me) and trying to avoid a little section of ice… I landed really funny on my right foot as I was coming off of the sidewalk into the street. It hurt, felt like a pop and then I stretched it out for a few minutes. It then felt better and I ran the last .5 miles to my car. I didn’t think much about it until I woke up on Wednesday morning… it hurt a lot more when I woke up. I skipped my run and did a workout at night that didn’t hurt (modified any of the boot camp jumping movements). I woke up this morning and it hurt even worse so I went and saw Dr. Bennett (bless his heart for fitting me in on such short notice.
The diagnosis—> Turf Toe (I’ll explain more about what this is tomorrow too:).
Definitely one of my best selfies:
Basically the ligaments around my big toe joint are sprained. I think my feet were already not having the best past few months and then jamming my toe during the sidewalk incident of 2016… and boom.
So, it just means I’ve got a few weeks of no running/jumping movements. PS he taped me up with DYNAMic tape which makes walking feel a heck of a lot better already.
I’ll be back tomorrow morning with why I’m not really that bummed about it and how I’ve learned to view injuries over the years (although, I haven’t had to take time off from running due to an injury in almost TWO YEARS) but I’ve got two kiddos today (babysitting my friend’s kid) and so today got crazy real fast (moms of multiple children—> how the heck do you do it?)
After a post of what sounds kind of like complaining ha… TELL ME SOME GOOD NEWS in your life or something that made you happy today?
-Brooke hugged me this morning and told me we were ‘best friends forever’ so yeah, that made me smile.
