Yup this is as painful as it looks.
This morning I decided to make some great use of the sun shining and go do some running. I have really been enjoying do the running thing for a while now. I have been loving the weight it has been helping me get rid of and the energy it gives me but I especially love being outside so being stuck on the treadmill has been driving a little crazy. All though I have had some trouble with it honestly all in all I can't complain about it, that is until today.
So I got just under a mile and half in on a route that I have run before without difficulties when i found a rough part in the side walk ( stupid side walk). Boy did I go down hard.Knocked the wind out of me, scratched me up pretty good and i was fighting tears immediately. Needless to say My running was brought to an abrupt halt.
I happened to fall right in front of a little girl who was playing in her yard she in turn went and got her mother. The mother was so sweet she went and got a chair for me to sit on for a little bit and seeing the blood running down my leg she also got me some Kleenex and a band aid to but over the heavy bleeding section. After a few minutes when I got my breath back I thanked her , wished her A Merry Christmas and limped away. As I limped down the street a truckful of people noticed me limping and pulled over to ask if I was ok. I of course said I was but thanks for the concern. If Nothing else this let me know that there are some friendly people around my neighborhood.
Before I left I told Ken I was going to go for a run and he in turn said don't get hurt. SO of course I texted him that he jinxed me. HAHA. Well it'sa good thing I don't actually believe in that sort of thing. So I guess I am taking a small hiadus from running for a couple of days but then yes I will be right back at it again.
