This depends very much on the type of fracture and you should follow the directions of your orthopaedic surgeon or other health care provider.  For example, with a broken lesser toe, you don’t need to slow down at all or only as needed for pain and swelling.  There are some that will be stable for walking in a week or two (again, realizing that swelling is the enemy and more walking equals more swelling).  However there are fractures that can require 6 weeks or longer of completing keeping all weight off the foot.
