To make matters worse, I hit my little toe on the leg of a chair in my house. It hurt but not that bad, so I just thought it was a bruise. Then I went to the doctor's on Friday and the xray showed that my toe was broken in middle. I had tears in my eyes when the doctor told me his diagnosis. He said I wouldn't be able to do the 2.5k ocean swim at Enoshima this weekend, nor would I be able to do the Sado half ironman in early September. The time necessary for healing 1-2 months! This year, I am going to take a break from racing, and take it easy. The day of the Enoshima ocean swim race, I got a call from my sister in South Carolina that my mother was admitted to the emergency room for a severe infection. What I want to say to everyone is don't push it to race when you don't feel like it or have some sense of apprehension. My bread kitchen is finally set up and it is time for me to concentrate on baking, not triathlon training. There's always another race, and another chance next year!
