So seen as though Monday's 1st attempt wasn't so bad thought today just set off from home as usual....

Erm mistake, pain was worse today πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ ,, plus everything seemed to pot .. breathing.. had to have 3 small breaks from running altogether hence the route took longer πŸ˜’...

Rest day tomorrow then see how Friday goes...

Race for life is next Saturday so really hoped to be improving rather than injury impaired Gutted !!

Have you strapped it to the toe next to it? I was advised to do this when I broke a toe years ago!

I have got some and strapped it this afternoon Pilates class was a little easier tonight so hopefully that may help for Friday's run.. 🀞

Bruising is very pretty colour's ha ha

Yes annoying when things go to pot. I would suggest taking 2 days off, possibly 3. You need to rest that foot. We both completed c25k at similar time. Lets both do next run on Sunday morning! Elevate that foot. Drink plenty on Saturday. You need to be ok for next Saturday. Just give it a restπŸ˜‰

Maybe an extra rest day or two for the toe ?, what a nuisance it is. Your pace is very impressive, I hope all goes well with your Race For Life πŸ‘πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ
