Wouldn't you know it, after being so careful, and really taking care of myself, and even starting yoga on my rest days to build up strength and stretchiness 🧘🏻♀️, have gone and injured myself doing something daft?!? My partner was complaining about the water pressure being wonky, so I stepped in to the bath (in my socks, because that is smart...) to show him that the shower head pipe was just kinked, and somehow managed to catapult myself backwards and sideways out hurling towards the bathroom cabinet. My partner caught me just in time to save me cracking my head open but managed to really wrench my back as well as scrape off large parts of one of my arms. 😫 So, have had to take a few extra rest days and listen to my own advice, about taking care of yourself and that you won't lose fitness, stamina or strength if need to take a few extra days. So annoyed with myself. 🤦🏻♀️ #tool
Socks and showers ☠️: Wouldn't you know it... - Couch to 5K
Crikey Bloomsbury22 ...sounds like you had a very painful but lucky escape? Thank goodness your partner was there to catch you??? Socks and bath are never a good combination (not that I've ever tried!!!) Definitely rest up...especially if you've hurt your back...you don't want to risk a long spell on the IC..Your stamina and fitness will still e ok after a few days and your next run will be out there waiting for you too...healing thoughts sent to you
Ouch!!! Lucky escape? Heal soon x
Ahh bless you! That’s such a gutter! Keep smiling. I’ve had to take a week off Half way through and it didn’t make a difference. Take care of yourself!
Oh no! Not good for you. Rest well and we’ll get there! I was meant to be starting week 9 yesterday, but my son is in hospital with heart problems and I just can’t focus on running at the moment. Take good care now 😉
Ooh😬. Sorry to hear, but thankfully not as serious as could have been.
Rest up and you'll soon be back, even stronger.
I only saw your post now. Poor you; thanks god nothing worse happened! I was glad to read in your recent post that you feel much better now and could enjoy the next run without any back pain. Having said that: Happy running!
Thank you! Yes, it could have been so much worse. Was super achey but took three rest days and after lots of stretching, completed W8R2 today. And so far my back feels fine! Finally also remembered to actually record a run on Strava, so trying to understand what the analysis actually means now...
