Well it was bound to happen…train hard enough and long enough and you’ll suffer an injury. Last night during a hard roll I slipped off of my training partner and my big toe planted awkwardly while the rest of my body continued to fall over. It hurt a bit but it just felt like it got stretched a little bit too much in a bad direction.
Fast forward to this morning and wow….I never knew a big toe could hurt this bad. I could barely push off of my right foot while walking. I made it into the gym and rather than lift weights or push a workout I did stretching, foam roller, and then did some stretching and walking. Eventually it loosened up and I was able to put weight back on it. Unfortunately wearing shoes and sitting for a good portion of the day meant it tightened back up and I was left walking with a limp.
Hopefully its just a slight strain and it won’t put a dent in my training but I can tell you that I will probably be skipping leg day this week.
