a.k.a. how to run with an ingrown and broken toe nail
a.k.a. This is where the running turns around baby!
I've kept to my running schedule since my bull-shitake run two weeks ago. And it's been basically consistent crappiness interspersed with bought of sheer loserdom. So I needed a run to turn it all around. And this one was it baby!
Today's run was a complex 2.9 mile warm up, 3.2 mile virtual race, plus 1 mile stagger home. Did I mention I operated on my toe last night at 4 in the morning? My toe cracked on my run yesterday, and I pulled out the broken piece, but there was a piece left in and it began to grind into the fat cheeky part of my big toe while I was sleeping. And at 4 am I couldn't take the pain and dug the rest of the nail out. Taped the toe up with gauze, rubber bands and put two tight socks on the foot and went for the run.
The pain made me run in a funny way. And when I uploaded my track from the Garmin I discovered the thorny problem.
Here's the interactive route if you want to take a look:
I think if I could figure out which way the "s" and "z" go I could open up a GEO-Writing business.
Here's the summary:
|precipitation||freezing rain and blowing snow|
|temp||feels like -4°C (16 °F)|
|winds||gusting to 54km/h (34 m/h)|
|distance||5.1 k (3.2 mi)|
Thanks for another wonderfully directed race Adam!
