I fell over!

Deary me. Yup... I went flying. Tripped on a rock and landed on a rock. Ouch!

Now this bit is quite sad. Instead of rolling around on the floor moaning like I did when I fell last year, my first thought was - pause the Garmin! And I did. Then went back to rolling around and moaning.

I think that makes me a proper runner! :D

There were only 0.15 miles left so after a minute I got up with a muddy bum (and everything else!) and finished.

Anyway it wasn't my fault! Someone was in the bathroom this morning so I went out without my contact lenses in. That makes me clumsy!

And to top it all off when I got in I straight away cleaned up my Garmin. I on the otherhand am still sat here in my sweaty, muddy running clothes. So now that the watch is sorted I'm off for a shower! I think I need to rethink my priorities...

Oh Kate, I feel your pain! My knees are still black and blue and my hands are still scabby from Sunday! However, drat it all, I didn't stop my Garmin when I fell! I was too in shock I think. The only time that mattered to me was the one on the digital clock as I fell over the line!

I think "the Garmin" has to be first priority at all times lol!!

I'm flabbergasted someone was in your bathroom and prevented you from leaving for your run with your eyes in!! There should be a law against it!! ;)

Just owning a Garmin makes you a runner, using it makes you an athlete :)

My Garmin, Garmin lead, ipod, earphones, cap, armband and running clothes all have their own special top drawer, as befits their status in my life ! :-)

Hope you are feeling better.

Lol - oh dear, hope you're ok now, and the Garmin is all pristine again! Fairplay to you though - I wouldn't make it down the stairs alive without my contact lenses in, let alone go for a run!! :D

Haha glad both you and the Garmin are ok!! I wasn't running when I fell a few weeks ago but my first thought was - oh no will I still be able to run!!

Funny how it gets us! :)

Ouch, glad you and the garmin are OK. However have to confess picturing you going to pause the garmin whilst rolling on the floor did make me laugh :)

Oh how I laughed, I'm sorry, I hope you're not to battered and bruised?!?, I dread falling over! As for priorities, yes, you have definitely got what is medically called "runners brain" . You stop thinking logically, All you can think about is running and how long and how many miles, Bruises......Pah!!!!

Now on a serious note, Is the Garmin OK!??! ; )
