I’ve been such an idiot! I signed up for a 5k-run (Marikenloop at Nijmegen) last sunday. Saturday I was rushing around at home and while being busy with everything and nothing at the same time I bumped my feet against the door post… Really hard… Since when was that door post there?? Uhmm like forever…?
To make a long story short: I could hardly get in my boots and walking was a disaster! Tried to cool it with an icepack and kept my feet up high, hoping that I would be able to run 5k the next day. Toe coloured into a lovely shade of red, blue and purple.
With some sportstape and a little patience I managed to get into my runningshoes. Walking was still a little painful at firts, but after a short warming-up I dared to start the race. I finished the 5k run in a time of 32:56 minutes. Not my fastest time and not the time I hoped for. But considering the bruised toe and the warm weather that day I actually was quite happy with that result! In advance I had my doubts wether I would be able to start at all!
Hopefully the bruising will heal soon enough so I can go out for another run and do my exercises!
