Self-inflicted sabotage is my new specialty. My toenail bent back at an improbable angle. Blood seeped from underneath. The Enthusiast cleaned and wrapped it for me last night.
Pain has subsided. The toe is swollen and tender. A shoe does not sound appealing. Flipflops for now. Five miles tonight may be done barefoot. Longer runs pose questions about proper soling for the rest of the week.
Ten miles tomorrow at tempo pace. Five hilly miles on Thursday. Ten more miles Saturday. Twenty on Sunday. Toe be damned.
Anybody know of some good running paths in Fort Wayne, Ind.?
