So the training update is that there is no training update. Since my left big toenail was removed two weeks ago (surgically), it’s taking a while to heal. I had a quick follow-up with the podiatrist this past Monday, and he pushed me to do soaks 2-3 times a day to speed up the healing. I’m super bummed, because this pretty much means that the Cape Cod Half Marathon is out for me this year! Even if I am running then, I don’t want to push it with 13 miles. The last thing I want to do is cause more toenail issues!
It’s so frustrating that just when things were starting to feel good, I have this damn toenail issue! That being said, I am glad that my orthotics will be cast next Monday, and hopefully that will help prevent this problem from recurring!
