W4R1, It was all going so well...


And then I fell!😲😲😲

I was really nervous about this run (another big jump to five mins) and so I can't tell you how fabulous I felt as I was in the last few seconds of warm down. Next thing I knew I was on the floor... Black ice that i'd not noticed.

My ankle and left side of knee bore the brunt of the impact and are sore and all I can think is... "Oh no, I break up from work today, I was going to run every other day now!"

It's all slowly seizing/stiffening up and so I can only keep my fingers crossed it will get better over the next couple of days.

I'm still elated though that I've ran for five whole minutes (twice!)🍾🍾🍾

And I'll just be sensible and listen to my body re Thursday's run.

Happy running everyone!🏃🏃🏃

Thanks Emsy.... 😘


Oh, no, what rotten luck. Rezt it and fingers crossed it will be better by the next run. Xx


Sorry to hear about that! Hope it's not too bad (ice and arnica balm?) and perhaps get an extra-rest day before your next run if you feel it's still sore. Get well soon!


So sorry to hear that. I hope that with rest and ice it will improve and you will be able to get back to running without too much of a delay. Good luck!
