Didn't get to do my W4 R3 yesterday due to an incident when out with the grandchildren on Wednesday (my birthday). My grandson and I were pushing a buggy when his foot in a trainer collided with my toe (in sandals). I've never felt like pain like it and then my toe swelled up to at least twice the size! Its now gone a shade of blue/black. Initially everyone thought I had broken my toe, however I think its just bruised very badly. Then it sunk in that would not be able to run and I'm not ashamed to say that I had a little cry. To top it all I weighed myself this morning and have actually put on weight plus upon looking in the mirror I looked more out of shape than ever. I really dont know whats going on, I eat healthily and have adjusted my portions so am not eating too much. If anyone can shed any light on this and help me I'd appreciate cos although Ive noticed I do have more energy, it's not showing physically and I would have expected running every other day to have some effect!! Feeling very down and despondent about this.
Anyway it doesnt look like I'll be running anytime soon as have got to get this swelling down and although I am able to walk, the bruise is painful and I can wear trainers because of the pressure on top of the toe.
