Walnut's Head Meets Mr Mulberry Tree

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

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!

    Ouch! At least you were near someone who could help and weren't too terribly injured. Glad you're okay, though!

    I'll do some other exercise but it's funny because I'm actually itching to run. I was feeling so great and accomplished last night.

    OMG! I'm glad you are ok!! Yes, please be careful. I wouldn't run for a couple of days. You will get the wound throbbing as your pulse rate raises. The sweat my reopen your wound.

I'm not giving you excuses, but more a precaution! Take care!!
