turf toe is what i got the other day when i face-planted while running. essentially i sprained my left big toe. i’ve been holding my breath, hoping it got better quickly – because at first it hurt a lot – almost too much to walk.
kris mentioned the injury to her chiro the other day, who then suggested that i get in to see an orthopedist post-haste. i did so, but by the time the appointment rolled around i was already miuch better. so the discussion with the doctor was more talking about running (he’s a fast miler).
so in a fit of irrationality, i took off for a 90 min run on cougar mtn while driving back from the doc. it was really nice, but probably not altogether wise. the toe flared up a bit while i was out, but i was able to manage it. i’ll go for an easy 6-7 tomorrow, but opt out of the mile repeats i was planning.
feel pretty lucky about this. apparently some cases of turf toe waylay you for months.
