So, as funny as this might sound, it's really not that funny. Today as I was getting dinner ready, I stubbed my toe really hard. Truman, our dog, was sprawled out in the kitchen and I was trying not to step on him and instead slammed my toe into the side of a drawer. I almost kicked the dog out of frustration and pain. Jake laughed and then quickly apologized. I told him it really hurt and I probably broke or sprained it. He said there was no way I could have done that just by smacking it. Well, 2 hours later it's turning bluish purple (can't tell so much in the picture) and it's pretty swollen (twice the size of my other pinky toe.) It hurts to walk on it or even slightly bend it. I'm REALLY hoping it's just jammed and a few days off of it will fix it. I guess this week I better take it easy and focus more on cross training than running... which I really do NOT want to do. Geez, of all injuries I could have, it would have to be something with my feet. That's just plain annoying! If anyone can give me some advice or have had a similar experience, tell me what you did.
