So, what's the latest?

I managed to break my toe this morning.

Went downstairs early in the AM to work out.  Was barely awake, and stepped towards the light switch... and managed to kick the SO's ski's in their travel bag.  I saw it, but somehow didn't realize that there was a protrusion on the side (the bindings?) - which caught my right little toe, bending it WAY back.  Sharp pain, looked down... and my toe was sticking out at a 45 degree angle.  

Not good.

Hoped it was dislocated, so I reached down to put it back into place.  It kinda lined up right... but sharp pains, swelling, and bruising tell me that it's broken.  Thank god it isn't the metatarsal (the long bone in the foot from the ankle to the toe) - I wouldn't be able to stand or walk.  As it is, I can walk (limp), and stand if I put weight towards the inside edge of my foot.  So I should still be able to do my weight workouts.

Cardio is likely going to have to go.  I'll try the recumbent bike tomorrow, see how it goes.

Ouch! I broke a toe recently, my "ring finger" toe (next to the pinky) so at least it was braced on both sides. I just stubbed it on the ottoman as I was walking by (clumsy) and there's nothing that could be done for it except to wait for it to heal. Sure bruised up nice and purple, though. Hope yours heals quickly! Keep it elevated when you can.
