Bah, I fell down on my run tonight. I hate that. I had never fallen down on a run before June (well, unless you count the two times I've fallen off of a treadmill)... In June, I fell while running with my group on a weekend run - to applause from the group behind us. Now, I fell tonight :( I was just running along - granted, downhill. I was almost home, maybe about a quarter mile away and just tripped on a bit of sidewalk. I tried to dive into the grass, but only succeeded in getting my shirt dirty. I did manage to protect my right knee, but not my left.
At least it's only my skin that was hurt, I didn't break or sprain anything, which is always a worry. I'm just sad that I had planned to go to the pool tomorrow morning and now I can't. I mean, I'd be annoyed if someone showed up at the pool with a big bloody knee. Besides, that's just asking for an infection. I thought I'd share the gory photo if you'd like to see it. I hate it when people put gory injury photos on a blog or Facebook without warning, so you'll have to click here if you want to see it.
Share your running falling stories if you have any!
