Swimming is Dangerous

Who knew that swimming could be dangerous?  I've always thought of it as a pretty safe workout since you're not pounding your body and using only the water as resistance.  Turns out, I was wrong.  Earlier today I was doing my workout, went into a flip turn and OUCH!  I got my toe stuck under me while flip turning and pushed off the wall like that.  Immediately I knew it was broken.  Of course, being the good athlete that I am, I immediately stopped my watch and then checked out my toe.

This is what it looks like now.  Should I call the doctor or just tape it to another one and keep on?

Mer, you make me laugh.

I took a spill in the Arizona desert a few years back and split open my chin, exfoliated my shins and knees on quartzite, and was pretty sure I had broken my jaw. First thing I did was stop my watch. ;)

This, for sure, has not been your best year. =/ What's the word? Did you tape it an suck it up or did it require something more professional?

I sucked it up. And a few days later ran 7 miles. Game on!
