Don't Step On My Blue Suede Shoes...or Blue Toes!!

Don't really remember this hurting much when I stubbed my toe on something in my bedroom...I don't exactly recall what! However, the next day, I was surprised to see such a bruise and to experience so much pain. It is definitely is broken and they don't do anything for broken baby toes.

I'm hobbling around okay in my summer sandals but I'm really missing my urban poling (Nordic walking) exercise routine.
I'm going to try biking today and tomorrow as it's to be a sunny 23 Celsius both days...such a gift! Hope it doesn't hurt to press the pedals. I like to be as active as possible.

I love it when you are talking about the "Nordic Walking" - but your toe must hurt.

Many years ago, when Anna and I were - you know - well we used to in the afternoons - bike out to the pennisuale - (Bygdoy) - where I grew up. Brought our salads for dinner and a special evening also a bottle of sparkeling wine. U know - those bottles are heavy. Well I did open the bottle - but somehow - that bottle went down - yeah, hit Anna's right "big" toe, which stayed blue for 2 years.
To day we laugh about it - a romantic evening at the sea - ending with two years of a blue toe. We are still married. Hurray.

You still have summer temp. Incredible. We've had frost during nights.

Ouch! Hey, take care of your tow.

Not that it's related, but years ago, when I went skiing, I took a bad fall and really hurt my thumb. I don't know if I fractured it or not, but it hurt for months.

Let us hope and pray, it won't take long to heal.

Toraa: Yeah, I guess you do "Nordic" walking all the time even just around the house! HA!

You should have left the sparkling in your eyes instead of the wine! That's a funny story but man, that's a long time to have a bruised toe!! Did she hobble and limp for that long? You owe her big time!

Today and tomorrow it'll be nice like summer but that's the weird thing about our weather, it changes and does so very quickly sometimes. Some people have had frost here..not us since our little town is in a valley.

Richard: Yes, ouch! Man, I hope it heals in at least a month. I can drive a car but to push bike pedals hurts. Then, because of the way I'm walking, my lower back and opposite knee are sore too. I'm now begging my husband to give me a treatment in his office tonight!!

Hi MOI. Sorry to read this. A couple of weeks ago, I fell and twisted my ankle while walking along a pavement and I couldn't sleep that night because of the pain. I was out of action for the next few days.

Hope at the time of my writing this, you were able to ride your bike. Please take care.

Ouch... that does look sore. I broke a bone in my foot once, tripping while running up some stairs. Our feet are so taken for granted .. until misfortune strikes.

And +23.. how glorious!!!

OOhhhh, pretty colors. :)

I broke my baby toe one too. When i went to the doctor he was most helpful. "You have a broken toe," he said, "goodbye."

Twilite: Actually, I didn't ride my bike..I did groceries instead and that took me about 2 hours! I usd the cart like a walker!

Clive: It's only the baby toe but it's amazing how much weight you put on it. My back is all out of line as is my knee because oif limping. Got a good chiropractor who did a house call last night!

Grizz: HA! Well, I got out of a few things!

Coll: yes, I'm gimping around a lot and feel useless!

It actually went to 26C!

meno: Exactly! Nothing to be done anyway except I've been puttin g ice on it.

looks little toe likes to jump out of joint and stick out at a 90 degree angle from its bigger toe used to hurt when that happened but now I just reach down and (snap) pop it back into place!

Poor you ! that happens when you play football in a room, lol ! I know it hurts and it takes some time to heal. My son once shot in a sidewalk and had 5 toes broken it took a long time until they were healed. But it doesn' t hurt anymore after a short while.

gattina: Thanks for the sympathy! I'm not sure I understand what your son did in the sidewalk? Sounds painful!

You never appreciate those little toes so much until you catch one on something and feel that inevitable pain and see the shades of blue and then green and yellow. Rest assured that it will mend itself, but in the meantime you may have to go easy on the hiking!

Barbara: Yes, I'm trying to do the exercise bike instead!

Colleen: I'm hobbling but I know it'll get better in not too long.

Mystic: I never realised that the baby toe does so much for balance!

Ouch! I can remember years ago stubbing my big toe which bruised spectacularly. I don't think it was broken but boy was it sore for weeks!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment. :)

As a Norwegian I was curious about 'urban poling (Nordic walking) exercise*?
