My toe and foot are much less swollen, but the toe itself really hurts. And when I squat down to pick up the numerous pieces of trash and other kid items strewn about my house after a long day of clinic, it feels like my toe isn't attached to my foot. It feels like it is just there, with no direction or purpose.
|Full Speed Ahead!! Or not, but always, forward.|
Ironically, I feel more purpose this morning than I have in weeks, if not months. And with that as inspiration, I am going to try on my running shoes today and see if I can do one mile. If I cannot run the mile, I'll at least try to power walk. And if I cannot do that, I'll stick to push-ups and sit-ups for the rest of the month. I know I am at 20 push-ups right now, and let's see how many more I can work up to. I'll do 100 sit-ups/crunches for now.
Any other suggestions on low impact things I can do? (And not swimming because I am not going to make it to the pool, but otherwise, great idea.) I suppose I could also get my hands on some weights and do some of the upper body things I learned at STRENGTH studio this Spring.
