Well, it wasn’t a run, but I did make it out for a walk today at least. Two and a half miles, my toe only got twingy a couple of times. Up until yesterday, I couldn’t even put my sneakers on, so I feel like tonight was real progress. It was a beautiful evening and I really needed the fresh air and movement so it felt great.
Funny how when you get hurt, or when I got hurt anyway, I got nervous about doing much of anything because I was afraid of rehurting my toe. When I tried to run last week, it was really, really not fun.
It’s frustrating not to move, but it’s easier than getting hurt again. And then it just gets easy to get lazy. There have been things I could do this week that didn’t necessarily require sneakers, but I didn’t do them.
I did go for a good walk tonight. And I can do that again tomorrow. Time to get back to the rest of the routine too. I may not be racing next week, but I do have triathlons on the calendar.
I’m going to add a couple of 10ks in May and June too. I hope to be back to running by next week but I won’t push it. In the meantime, there’s always walking. The way I walked today, that was a good workout too.
