Image courtesy of Google, I was far less elegant!!Having sensibly not run all week because of the conditions I decided I could go today and tomorrow. I had to go early because of things I needed to do, so up and out by 07.00. Lit up and layered up I set off. About 0.5 km in I knew they was a puddle where the lane always floods, so I was already walking when I slipped on black ice.
It wasn't graceful, somehow I managed to control it enough to land sideways, so the impact went hip, elbow and hand/wrist . I was flat out, sprawled across the lane😬
Initial assessment seemed OK, I jogged off and spent about 0.5 km doing mental assessment of potential injuries to my body, then a few minutes wondering if I had damaged my leggings! At 3km I was thinking my elbow was making itself known, but nothing too concerning.
What the heck if I'm having to go slower, then I'll go a bit further, so a chilly 6.5 km it was.
Once home all appears to be intact, including the leggings 🤣
