Not at all what I intended to start my 2013 workouts!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

I got all this new stuff for Christmas, including cold weather gear for walk/running. I geared up tonight and went for a walk. The road was dry in all the areas I was walking. I was out across the street and a car came up behind me. I moved over a little to let the car go by and totally wiped out. I came down on my knee, tore my pants and shredded my knee pretty bad. The young couple was nice enough to stop and help me get up. The drove me home and got me inside where I now sit with my cleaned up, elevated knee that is killing me!! Not exactly what I had planned! I was so happy to get out there and get it all started. What was supposed to be at least a 40 minute workout turned out to be 15 minute quickie! Uggh!!
At least I didn't break anything!

    Oh no! Sorry to hear this. This is the reason I don't walk in the winter, I am afraid of slipping! I hope you heal up fast! How nice of the couple to stop and help you. Take care of yourself!

    Take care of yourself and let time heal. It is extremely disappointing, but it sounds as though you were blessed by it not being any worse.

    Oh no! What a bummer! Take it easy -- and you may want to get your knee checked by a Dr. Sounds like you went down hard.
