Ugliest Feet Ever

This morning, a podiatrist told me I needed to stop biking for two weeks because of a painful and inflamed toe.

I stared at him.

He said not to worry, I could still run and could get my exercise fix that way.

I continued to stare at him.

But in another two weeks if it hasn't healed, I would need to stop running for two weeks.

I blinked.

It's okay! He says, you can just hit the pool if that happens and you can swim for exercise!

He has no idea.

I am still planning on biking and running and swimming. But I'll buy new bike shoes that will hopefully take the pressure off of my angry red swollen toe.

I hate my feet.

Bri, what happened to your toe?
There is always a spot for you in my lane if it comes down to the single sport training of swimming. I hope your toe feels better soon and you can keep running.

What a dope. (the doctor that is) What is he thinking? Good luck with your toe though! And by the way - I have very similiar feelings about my feet. Of all my parts, my feet have caused the most heartache. Dang things won't cooperate sometimes... :)

Missed you at "Fast Friday" this morning Bri! Not even a show at the food factory. What are you thinking?
Get that toe healed up quick and find a new doctor who understands Triathletes.
