[149 days to go] Major set back for next Sunday’s half marathon. I had a slight miscommunication with the rain yesterday morning on my way to work. Being in a rush, I grabbed my flip-flops to wear for the walk over, since I despise wearing wet shoes/socks, and my rain boots were hiding from me. As I was walking across a side street I slipped and starting to fall backwards. Being the gravitationally-inclined person that I am, I swung my left foot out in front of me as a counter-balance… and my foot kicked right into a concrete sidewalk. I hobbled to work bleeding (flap of skin dangling on the top of my left big toe = gross) and realized when I triage-d the injury that I had jammed the joint in my big toe and it was swollen, painful and hard to move. Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. RICE. Rice. rice. ricericericerice.
I’m not sure if I will be ready by next Sunday but I will be the crankiest person in Boston if I’m not.
