I broke a toe (can't even remember which one it was now) and, despite padding, found it too sore to run properly at normal level (had to build up to every other day runs) for quite a few weeks ( I heal slowly though). I know this isn't what you want to hear - sorry. If it hurts, I'd ease off until it stops hurting. Doing some reasearch at the time, I did come across people who ran with broken toes and they never quite healed properly. I might be being over-cautious but, for the sake of a disrupted running schedule for a few weeks, think it's wise to err on the side of caution.I now have no problems at all with the toe.
