Lifted upper body fluff stuff the day after my last post, nothing special. Incline dumbells/chest supported rows, curls & lateral raises.

I’ve had a slight issue with turf toe on my good leg for years, but it’s never immobilized me. At some point labor day weekend I aggravated it. Then went to Wildwood which is a huuuuuge beach. Bad idea. Without all the sob story details, I tried to salvage my mini vacation by just “walking slower” uuuggghhh. Turned 40 yesterday & spent the day on crutches. I’ll probably stay out of the gym another week or so & won’t be squatting or deadlifting till I can walk pain free. Probably be a machine circuit guy for a few weeks.

Edit - no steaks no shakes but looots of other food. Down 2-3lbs I attribute it to being off the creatinez for a week.

I’ve never heard of the term ‘turf toe’ but by your description it sounds shit. Best of luck getting rid of it. And happy birthday, a few of us 40 year old here now :+1:


#367

Sorry to hear about the camel toe :wink: Looks like it is a common theme that when we turn 40 things just to hurt more. My approach is to ignore it and just keep on grinding. Happy birthday to you mate and welcome to the best decade of your life. You are still young enough to have fun and kick arse and now old and wise enough to know better. Take it easy.

@I_Luc, @simo74
Thanks for the birthday wishes fellahs.Turf toe is a sprain of the big toe joint associated with jumping/landing, sprinting or walking up inclines. It’s never been more than a dull ache in the ball of my foot that required me to take it easy for a day or so to resolve. I first felt it ~7-8 yrs ago from lots of basketball dunking & drills on outdoor courts. It causes pain when pressure is applied to the joint (walking/standing) & when the toe is bent at all backwards (push-off position). Rest & taping the joint are the Rx’s. Part of the problem is that by limping around I’m making my other leg joints sore. Gotta sit & eat for a while lol

Hobbled into the gym today. Toe still sore but I can walk slowly without aggrivating it. Did some upper body stuff.

Whoooo the doms!!! Back was tired after deadlifts so took another 2days between sessions. Kept today short & sweet. Foot healing but I’m still taking it easy with mostly flat dog walks as opposed to the hills we usually do.
