Having broken my little toe 15 days ago I was told not to run for 4-6 weeks, I was gutted having only graduated 5 days before the break. I saw a friend who is an orthopedic surgeon on Friday and he told me I could not harm the toe by running. So up at 6.30 this morning and back on the road. Decided to do Week 6 run 10 mins, walk 3 then run 10 which actually turned into 15 mins run . I feel encouraged that I should be able to get back to 30 mins continuous running in the next few weeks and it felt great to be out and running again

  • That's great news. Hope the little one was ok at the end......

  • Yes thanks it felt fine actually quite comfy in the trainers....

  • Wow running on a broken toe, that's one to note!

    Well done on showing such commitment. I hope it won't make anything worse. Still, if an expert said it was ok then crack on (pardon the pun!)

    Take it steady, nice and easy does it

  • The toe felt OK , i was more bothered by the bites I had on my other foot rubbing against my socks but at least i got out there

    ps- love a good pun !!!
