I promised that i would come and tell you about how I got on with the running club.
So yesterday evening I set out in the dark to run the mile to the meeting place for the running club. I even had my daughter’s old smart phone with the much desired MapMyRun app installed!
1 K into the run I tripped over a raised manhole cover and took a pretty bad fall. My right knee caught the brunt of it and I then bounced onto my left side which scraped across the pavement.
There was nobody in sight, so I picked myself up and walked back home. I arrived shaking with cold (and possibly a bit of the shock of it all).
This morning my right knee is quite swollen, bruised and stiff – but it seems to be moving in all the right directions, so hopefully no serious damage done. I will ask my physio colleague at work to have a look at it.
My left side (face, boob and wrist) are a bit scraped, but nothing too serious.
Bummer – however, thanks to the MapMyRun app I can report that I was running a 5:43 min/km pace when I took my tumble. So all in all not a bad time. 🙂
I guess I will have to take it easy for a few days …
