I'm sad to report that my marathon training has been put on hold for a bit. I had a freak accident last Sunday that involved a remote control essentially becoming a roller skate under my bare foot on the tile. I pretty much did the splits and my other foot landed face up on the tile with a very hard smack. The pain sent me through the roof! I thought for sure I had broken my big toe or a bone in the top of my foot but thankfully, after having it checked out, that doesn't appear to be the case, just a bad bruise on the bone. This means no running or other jarring type of activities until the pain is gone. Well, it's been a week and there is still a fair amount of pain when pressure is applied to the top of my foot. Strangely enough, there has been little to no pain when I'm walking or put pressure on it from the bottom so it doesn't even look like I'm injured at all! I'm not sure how this is going to impact my marathon training. I'll have to see if I can catch back up to the schedule, otherwise, I may have to alter my plans and run the 1/2 instead. I'm hoping I can persevere though and get back on track for the full.
