What happens when you forget that youíre riding a bike?

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Answer, you end up bouncing your chin off the pavement and taking a sick day from work.

I was nearly home last night when I got to fiddling with my MP3 player. Luckily, I was on a side street with no traffic. I lost control of my bike, over corrected, panicked, got my legs caught in the bike frame and ended up skidding to a stop on my chin. I spent the night with a throbbing headache while seeing very pretty, multicolored stars.

Did you know, bike helmets are less then useless when you land on your chin? I know that now!

I skinned my right hand, sprained several fingers including both thumbs, skinned my right leg, severely bruised my right breast, and generally jacked myself up.

Itís my first bike accident since I was a kid.
But I didnít break a single nail! You know a traumatic brain injury is nothing compared to having a broken nail; after all, Iíve spent so long growing them out and theyíre so pretty now.

Anyway, I wonít be working out today.

    Whoa! That's quite a fall. It's been a few years since I've fallen from my bike, but I have flipped over the handlebars a couple times in my adult years. It's not fun. I feel down while running recently and ripped up my hand, but it was nothing like what you're explaining here. I hope you feel better very quickly! emoticon

    Wow, you took a spectacular fall; hopefully you are not too sore and will mend soon. I'm thinking rest and take good care of yourself now emoticon so you will be working out again before you know it :-)
