I know it has been 3 days and I am already looking for my next trail race but I feel like I can still smell the evergreens. It has been a long time since a racing experince has left such an impression on me. Even though I can't really say I was "racing" during this lastest event as much as I was enjoying the journey.
And ENJOY I really did! The still painful big toes are a small price to pay for such a wonderful day.
Since the race I have been cross training; the eliptical, walking, a little jogging and core work but that is it. And I am going crazy. I do hope to get in a short easy run tomorrow to test out my poor boo-boo toes. I hope I don't lose more toenails! My trail shoes did not have enough miles on them and I think they should have been a half size smaller.
My big toes were the only 'hot' spot after the race.
Major fluid under my toenails. Painful!
I will spare you the details.
Have you ever experienced a blister under your nail bed?
