I injured myself accidentally on Friday and wound up in Accident & Emergency (ER) where I had to have an X-Ray and my toenail removed and my toe tidied up a bit. Although I've lost nails before, they've normally just gone black and dropped off without causing me any real pain. This one is rather different and it's incredibly sore, I can barely walk and so I know running isn't going to happen for a bit. I had to have the dressing changed yesterday and while the nurse said it was "Looking great - exactly what we'd want to see" I was quite shocked by how "wet" it still was.
I have a half marathon in a few months and a couple of 10 mile military endurance races this year, which I need to straight training for in boots and with a bergen (backpack). I'm also meant to be helping my wife train for her marathon, but I suspect I'll miss the boat on that as she'll end up miles ahead of me.
But, I was hoping others with similar experience or knowledge could give me an indication of what I can expect going forwards?
Are these likely to happen, or should I resign myself for 6 months of slow 5km runs?
