Oh no, a fall!

Friday, November 30, 2012

Thatís FALL, not fail. Not a nutrition backslide, a hard fall on my knee and elbow. Last night leaving an event at my granddaughterís school, we were walking in the dark down the long driveway when I slipped off the steeply banked blacktop and landed in the gravel. I fell hard on my elbow and knee, the knee thatís just had 3 months of rehab. This is why I never run in the dark. Obviously I shouldnít even walk in the dark.

Once home I cleaned up the bleeding knee, iced both knee and elbow and complained a lot. The good news, I suppose, is that I didnít break anything. What lousy timing! I planned to run a 5K on Saturday.

So I donít have a lot of words this morning, not printable words anyway. Iím mad at myself for not watching where I was going, not paying attention etc. etc. Once again Iíve injured myself and once again I didnít do it running, playing any sport or working out, just being clumsy.

Be careful out there!
