Well, this isn't the Big Lebowski, this is the Big Bolestridge and I am definitely in need of a new toe right now so I can continue on my path to becoming the Small Bolestridge.
Don't ask me how in the world I did it, but I was running on that big burly "low-impact treadmill" again...
and I was wearing my vibrams and just caught my toe in one of those darn threads... my big toe. I decided to finish my run despite the pain and ended up stubbing the same freaking toe while doing my cool down walking. :( Needless to say my toe hurts BAD!
I took yesterday off (I needed to take a rest day anyways) and thought i'd be fine today so I really pushed it in the gym and now my toe feels like crap again.
So what should I do? Let it heal? Keep training? Go to the doctor? I don't know. It didn't kill me to run today so I think I am going to continue training and if in a week it still hurts like this I am going to go to the dr. and see whats up. I don't know.
Besides the toe ordeal Im feeling great. I really did have a great workout today - I went to SNAP in Ashtabula today with my friend Rhonda and that girl is tiny and STRONG! She was also running on the treadmill at 9.5 miles per hour for her whole run. It really made me want to push myself harder and harder. So, if you're reading this THANK YOU RHONDA! You really do rock! I hope I can not only be as strong as you, but that I can be as hott as you too! (if only my clumsy ass body would cooperate!)
Ok - the plans for this weekend include job hunting, working out (a lot), spending time with my sweet baby sister and family (a lot) and doing homework. And tomorrow night after Abby's soccer practice we're having dinner at Los Compadres a mexican restaurant near us - a great opportunity for me to have my first "cheat meal."(make sure you check out the page I just linked to "cheat meal")
Well, I think that is about all for today but here are a few informative articles some of you may find interesting.

"Your training partner's name is pain. You start out trying to ignore him. Can't do it. You attempt to reason with him. No way. You try to strike a bargain. Hah. You plead. You say "Please stop, please go away. I promise never ever to do this again if you just leave me alone." But he won't. Pain only climbs off if you do. Then you're beaten. "
