Ben takes a long class at his gym on Saturdays and it’s my long run day so we’re usually pretty lazy in the afternoon. Vegas just sleeps 22.5 hours a day…
I noticed the second toe on my big foot was hurting a little bit the other day when I tried to curl it under. After Googling some stuff I’m freaking out. Here are the facts:
It hurts to curl under. I can curl all the rest of the toes on that foot without pain.
It appears slightly swollen.
It does NOT hurt to curl up toward my shin.
The pain is close-ish to the base of my toe, not the tip.
I’ve squeezed on my nail and don’t think it’s a nail issue.
It appears it might be a stress fracture or a tendonitis issue. I do suddenly recall getting tendonitis in my foot many years ago while training for my first full, but it was on another part of my foot.
I iced/elevated it this morning and now it’s “buddy taped” to the toe next to it.
Has this ever happened to you? Thoughts?
Happy Happy Happy Mother’s Day to the world’s best mom!
