hi everyone,

i have been exercising systematically for over 7 mos now and i feel great.
i love it so much!!

anyhow due to a minor injury in my big toe which turned out to be a minor fracture
i was advised to avoid exercise for a few days.

since i worked so hard to get myself into a certain fitness level will i am afraid
i will lose my stamina again and find myself getting depressed over this.

so question is how long it takes for someone to decondition ??

thanks

If you are only avoiding exercise for a few days, I don't think this would have that much effect on your stamina.  I guess I would ask if you must avoid ALL exercise or are there some that you could still do - that might not put a lot of pressure on your toe?? Yoga comes to mind because there are quite a few postures that you could do and still be gentle with your toe.  

The hardest part about ME not being able to exercise, is that once I let it go for a few days, it's hard to get back into the "groove" again.

hi, i know exactly what you mean!!!this is what i am afraid of as well.

well, the orthopedic said that i managed to brake it and it hurts so much
so i think i'll give it a rest for a week or so!!!

i absolutely hate it though. yoga seems a good idea,
