Big Foot

The past few runs, I have noticed that my feet have swelled beyond capacity in my running shoes.

I couldn't figure out what had happened to them. The horrid heat managed to make my feet as big as big fat kielbasas? It was extremely uncomfortable to have my big fat sausages stuffed into two thimbles that were my sneakers.

So this past weekend, I decided to take out my orthotics and just run without the inserts. As I took out what I thought was my orthotic, I realized it was the insert to the shoe. Apparently, CJ, who had borrowed my shoes recently, had put the inserts into the shoe...*on top* of the orthotics. Whew. I was beginning to wonder if I was pregnant or retaining *a lot* of water, the former being really disturbing as Tim has been, you know, neutered.

Now I have a nail digging into my toe. The middle toe nail apparently is too long and is being shoved into the fourth toe while running.

Today I did Interval Training with a lot of jumping and all I could feel was the damn toenail digging into my poor toe. Lauren kept yelling at us to go fast, jump high, work hard, and I kept thinking about my poor little toe...well, not thinking, but feeling the pain! I was a trooper though...and worked out despite my pain. :)
