Tonight I decided to get my act together and get back with my work out program. I started out walking like normal and then turned on the BNH Couch to 5k program and I was running well, like really well! In my second stretch of running I stopped about 30 seconds before I should have so I took a deep breath and tried to push on through.
Next thing I know I'm on the ground confused and there's hot stuff on my head. Thanks to my super fast brain I figured out that 1) my head was bleeding, 2) it was bleeding a lot 3) it was from that branch I always duck 4) I needed to get help.
I stumbled my way over to the next house with lights on and knocked on the door. A lady in her 60's opened the door....and was horrified.
She ended up givingm e a towel and her son ushered me into the bathroom to clean myself. I looked like a nightmare. I looked like Carrie in the scene from the movie where they pour the pig blood on her.
So long story short, I went to the ER. They did a cat scan, I'm fine. Cleaned up my wound and sent me home. I'm to skip running tomorrow.
Moral of the story? Be careful!
