February Miles And Goal Check In

Well, unless I manage to squeeze in a run today (which at the time of writing this I’m not sure if we have anything on the agenda for today. I’m currently in Colorado visiting my parents and my dad might be planning another fun adventure.) I’m ending February with 18.57 miles run.

Honestly, that’s not bad considering I had my second toe incident in two years happen this month. Haha this time I slipped, fell, and stubbed my toe on the foot of my couch. And then immediately went and ran 4 miles on it because it looked fine and only hurt a little. But it did not look fine after that 4 miler haha. Although I did not see a doctor (they wouldn’t have been able to do anything about it anyway), I’m pretty sure I at the very least fractured it and was unable to really even walk on it for two weeks.


This was taken on February 7th, the day I stubbed it. Luckily it doesn’t look like that anymore haha. It’s still got a small, brownish bruise on it, but other than that my toe looks pretty much normal again. It’s still kinda sore though, and I can definitely feel it if I’ve been standing on it too long. But I’ve been able to start doing a little bit of running again. πŸ™‚

Anyway, as for my yearly goals, well, I kinda fell of the bandwagon with those a little bit. But in all fairness, walking 10,000 steps on a broken toe would have been a bad idea. So I just kind forwent that and focused on resting, icing, compressing, and elevating my toe. And all things considered, I think it did heal pretty darn fast. So staying off of it for a while probably helped speed up that process.


Haha just by looking at my little Habit Bull chart thing, you can see when I broke it. When I was trying to stay off of it. And when I started getting back into the swing of things.Β 

I haven’t really been writing a good thing every in my training journal either. But I mean, I haven’t been training so I haven’t been journaling about that. Also I kinda forgot to bring it to Colorado with me. πŸ˜‚ But I plan on resuming that once I get back home. πŸ˜„

And speaking of goals, I really need to update my “Goals and PR’s page“. I haven’t done that yet and we’re already entering the 3rd month of the year. Haha oh well better late than never, right? I’ll have to do do that when I get home as well.

Anyway, all in all I’m pretty happy with how this month went, considering my probably broken toe. I was still pretty active. I spent a lot of time on my stationary bike and even did a pretty decent amount of upper body work. Thanks to that I’m pretty sure I didn’t lose as much fitness as I could of if I hadn’t done that. So far returning to running hasn’t been all that bad. 😊

How did your February go? Really well, I hope! Wishing everyone a very happy March!
