Getting back on my toes

My left big toe has recovered enough that it is no longer putting a cramp on my practice. The swelling has gone down substantially and range of movement has also improved. I can now incorporate jump-backs and jump-forwards into my vinyasa flow. It’s now been six weeks since I came down full bore on the toe while doing a one-legged jump-back. It will probably taken another six weeks to heal the joint, which is still red and irritated. This week, I noticed that by the end of the day I was not dying to take off my shoes and put my feet in the air. I could fit into my running shows. I did not worry about my wife kicking my toe from her side of the bed in the middle of the night. Funny how a minor injury like this can throw you off.
