Ouch!

This injury couch must be catching, I went out this morning and must have been day dreaming as I never saw the pot hole and over I went. Good job I wasn't being marked for artistic interpretation or style as I don't think you can mark that low! 😊 Must have been taken out by a sniper as it took me by surprise and there's me thinking I was sure footed! Good job there was no-one around as I would have felt a right plonker! 😊 What has annoyed me is it looks like I won't be able to finish Jantastic for March as my right knee is cut and swollen along with my right elbow. I have been lucky until now so I suppose it was inevitable that something would happen sooner or later. time to chill out on the sofa!

Get the Savlon and frozen peas into action!

Hope your IC stay is comfy but short.

Thankyou Kitty, as long as the knee goes down things will be ok.

Oh no, what's happening, all these people suddenly flinging themselves about, hope you recover soon, take care of yourself. It amazed me how fast I went down when I fell over!

Sorry finger trouble, I was about to say I must have looked like a practising Ninja turtle and not a very elegant one at that. More careful in future.

Sounds painful, but you may be OK. I've been over a couple of times and skinned knees and hands, but have been fine to run 2 days later though could not wear short skirts for a while! Take care out there.

Thankyou catch, I will be out and about as soon as the swelling goes down and I probably won't wear a short skirt either. He he 😊

Oh you'll be fine. A few cuts and bruises mark you out as a runner. We all do it at some point. i bet you'll be good to go by the time your next run is due

Thanks misswobble my next run is Friday, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Hope all's well in a day or two. In the meantime, there's always room for one more on the injury couch, especially if you bring cake with you ;)

Thankyou AM, will fresh cream cakes do? 😊

Definitely :)

Ouch NTJ! We don't bounce like we used to. Hope you won't need the IC for long 😞

Thankyou Ullyrunner, correct we certainly done bounce. Might have been better if I landed head first that's soft, he he. 😊 But the IC sounds inviting with tea, biscuits and cake.
