Fat and Swollen

Is how my left foot looks. I don't know what I did to my foot honestly. Last week when I was dumb and forgot my hiking shoes and did the 9 mile hike in my flip-flops the only side effect was killer shin splints afterwards. Now the left foot is swollen, and I can't bend my big toe. Hmm this is not cool. I haven't been able to run all week and that is driving me CRAZY! Luckily I'm still lifting my weights and that feels good, but I'm missing my cardio big time. What the heck did I do!? I'm no stranger to broken bones and had a few broken feet, and wrists from sports when I was little. Honestly this toe/foot thing reminds me of that a little bit. With the exception of not having a blatant injury. I'm taking Motrin and going to put ice on it. I sure hope it feels better soon. I can't wait to get back to running and biking.

Well I'm off to pack, we're going camping for the weekend. I'm very excited to be in the wilderness and just relax in the outdoors. And depending on the foot sitution I'd love to hike this weekend. I promise to be smart and wear my tennis shoes. Luckily I have a permanent pair that never leaves our pop-up camper ;)

Camping sounds soooo relaxing and fun!

My family used to have a pop-up tent trailer that we would bring down to Rocky Point, MX but now we just get a house. Where's your trip?

I can't wait to go camping! We're staying in MD, about 2 hours away in the town of Hagerstown. It's really pretty, lots of wilderness, waterfalls, hiking. Looking forward to it! Have a good weekend Ronnie :)

I love camping, although I haven't been in YEARS. I used to go camping every summer. Fun!!!

Maybe you twisted your ankle when your were hiking in your flip-flops? Not bad, but enough to cause it to flare up now? I've broken many a foot / ankle over the years and my last break never healed really well. It still flares up in the rain or when I am walking on it a lot.
