So last week’s Fitness Friday didn’t really work out too well. I think I was a bit too ambitious with my workouts.
On Friday I went to work and I could barely get my foot into my shoe. It was a miserable evening at work. I came home, iced my foot and got up and tried to go in on Saturday. I couldn’t get my foot into the shoes I had worn the day before so I put on the only shoes I could get on- they were a pair of canvas slip-ons. Bad bad bad idea. I had no longer been there an hour and some lady runs over my foot (the one with the broken toe of course) with a shopping cart. (seriously the people that shop there are incredibly rude- this is not the first time I’ve gotten hit with a shopping cart). I didn’t finish the day out- I went home in tears and told them I wouldn’t be back the next day either. The next day my whole foot was swollen. It was horrible!
Suffice it to say I didn’t work out this week. This broken toe hurts so much worse than the last time I broke it. The bruising is pretty much gone (thanks Kenisio tape!!!) but it still hurts incredibly badly!
So this week here’s my plan:
- Continue to see (on a day-by-day basis) if it feels comfortable enough to walk on with a shoe on. If it does, go for a walk. Even if it’s a short one!
- If I cant wear a shoe I can’t go to the gym. So this week I’m planning to do some weights at home (I have 5 and 10 lb weights).
That’s all I got!
I am so ready for this stupid toe to heal. I WANNA RUN!!!
Anyone got anything fun planned for workouts this week??
