Okay, here’s the deal. I broke a toe a couple of weeks ago - the second one on my left foot (it’s longer than my first). It’s a clean break, and right now I’ve just got it taped and I’m trying not to bend it or put weight on it. I know there’s not much else to do for it.
My doc told me wait two weeks to begin walking for exercise (I’m a distance runner). He also said no lower body lifting
In the meantime, I’m supposed to do swimming, cycling, and upper body lifts.
However, I’ve found that I can do hamstring curls without bending my toe. My question is if there are other (better)lower-body exercises that don’t involve pressure or bending of toes. I’ve searched archives and found little of any use.
Also, does anyone else have experience with getting back into running after a broken toe? How long does it take? Warning signs that I should look out for that things aren’t going well?
Thanks in advance for your help.
