Broken Toe

The title about sums it up.

I Slammed the pinkie toe of my left foot into the wall this AM. There was a nice 'POP!' noise, and it hurt like hell all day. Tonight it is all black and blue and quite sore. I 'buddy tapped' it to the toe next door and went for a spin on the road bike. It hurt, but wasn't terrible.

I'll try the team ride tomorrow, but if it hurts too much I might take the rest of the week off the bike.

Ouch. Shouldn't pinkie toes be obsolete by now anyway?

Heal fast.

It (the toe) seems to be getting better. It only hurts if I wear tight shoes, or if I don't tape it. I think it will be fine in a week or do.

Joe - the EXACT same thing happened to me last night. I'm training for four consecutive weeks of 50 milers and 24 hour duo races...and was worried it would be a huge setback. I went out for a couple hours on the road today in my "fat shoes" (Sidis) and, like you, it hurt a bit but was manageable. Good luck with it.
