Or more specifically, the big toe on my left foot. Is sore. Tender, really, just on top under the nail. And thanks to the nail polish, I can't tell what color the nail is...but it looks suspiciously dark under the nail. Actually, my right big toenail is tender too, but less so. I guess I must have put pressure on the toes when I was running? There wasn't much extreme downhill, so it's surprising. I am kicking myself a little for not remembering to cut my nails beforehand.
In other areas of the body, my legs are still pretty sore as well, particularly my quads. No running yet, obviously. I did do an hour on the elliptical before we left the hotel in Newport yesterday. Since there's no gym at the hotel in Cannon Beach, today is a rest day. I'm not counting a stroll with my mother through downtown Cannon Beach as exercise, although I might go for a walk on the beach later. After lunch, haha.
And speaking of food...well, I'm not going to speak of it just now. Post-marathon diet begins on Wednesday. I'm trying to just be reasonable right now. While staying in a hotel with cookies in the lobby and unlimited salt water taffy. (Which is like crack, I tell you!) And a really nice breakfast buffet....
