That’s FALL, not fail. Not a nutrition backslide, a hard fall on my knee and elbow. Last night leaving an event at my granddaughter’s 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 that’s just had 3 months of rehab. This is why I never run in the dark. Obviously I shouldn’t 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 didn’t break anything. What lousy timing! I planned to run a 5K on Saturday.
So I don’t have a lot of words this morning, not printable words anyway. I’m mad at myself for not watching where I was going, not paying attention etc. etc. Once again I’ve injured myself and once again I didn’t do it running, playing any sport or working out, just being clumsy.
Be careful out there!
