No not an injury thank goodness, but I took a tumble right near the end of a long run today! Having run the first 6 miles on trails and bridleways, up and down hills, picking my way 'nimbly' over tree root lined paths through woodland; it was the boring pavement 1/4 mile from home which caught me out! Staggered forward for a few paces before landing on my hands and then proceeding to do a kind of (fairly impressive) stunt fall(😮) that saw me rolling off my right knee and elbow and doing a sideways somersault! I have a fair few grazes and a bruise or two to show for my acrobatics but nothing more fortunately! The most annoying thing was that I stopped my Garmin and walked home, before berating myself for not carrying on to complete the 10! Never mind, final long long run done before my GSR. Will now drop my distance a little in preparation. Here's to a more sedate run next time out!🙂
