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!

Thanks PP; thankfully there's a friendly IC on offer with tea and biccies thrown in! Must learn to land softer or wear knee pads in future, he he! 😊

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

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 ;)

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

Frank-ntj in reply to Ullyrunner

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.

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