Now THIS is a bruise!

Monday, January 13, 2014

Update on my fall at the gym on the 7th of January. Here is how my leg looks today, the 13th:

Look, I'm a rainbow!

It looks pretty spectacular, but now that the swelling has gone and it's "just" a bruise, it doesn't really hurt (unless touched, obviously).

I was avoiding anything higher impact than walking, but yesterday I did a little jogging on the treadmill and it's totally fine.

Today is warmer, so I'm gearing up to go for a real, outdoor-type bike ride! Haven't done so in ages, I'll be happy to get out in the sun.

    OUCH! Yeah, that definitely left a mark.

I've done similar "I'm okay" embarrassing things, when I really wanted to cry from the pain. But when you have an audience, you just want to get swallowed up by a hole in the floor. Lacking that, you shrug it off.

glad you didn't break any bones or tear any ligaments!
