Oh dear I wasn't paying close enough attention to the trail I was running on on Sunday, was waving aside brambles and so stubbed pinkie toe very
hard on something, most likely a hidden tree root. ( in kso's btw) After a lot of hoppping up and down and near swearing ( I didn't swear as I was running with my 10 year old son , other wise I might have said something a little different to " Oh dear, oh dear, oh my gosh ow, ow ow"
Anyway I reckoned damage wasn't too
great and ran a further 5.5 miles home. Whenever I stopped to give my son a rest then the toe really hurt of course. Running on it wasn't so bad oddly.
Then my son tripped over just before we got home so we limped home together. I said to him " Tell daddy we DID have a fun time, look at the pair of us"
By the evening it was swollen and dark purple, like a fat little sausage, couldn't walk on it at all.
Now three days later I'm still hobbling but it is getting better. I've strapped it to the next toe, seems to help
Soooooo my question is for those of you who've badly stubbed/broken a toe running your vff's, how long until you started to run again?
I'm pissed off as you might be able to tell and of course everyone likes to wag their fingers because of my shoes, no proper protection you see
