Oops., ! 😫🏃‍♀️ Aargh! Sorry to hear that but it is a bit of an occupational hazard. Hopefully this sunshine will heal your face up in no time 🙂


Yikes??? I hope your feeling ready soon...you'll nail it next time...don't think too much about breathing through your nose, just do what feels best x


That sounds very painful, hope the swelling and bruising are going. I would suggest that if you feel mentally up for week 8, and can breathe through your mouth if you need to, go for it. Your running stamina should not have taken too much of a knock, so just try week 8 and see how you get on. Maybe try a different route if you are having negative thoughts about the place you fell at. Happy running :) .
