I am not really superstitious but another milestone today on the Juneathon challenge was the 13th of the month. I had plans to do a longer run but had to cut it short when I fell over. Not sure what I tripped on but I came a cropper going round a corner.
I am not sure what the the initial thought is as you start flying through the air, whether it is one of embarrassment as cars pass and you are giving them some better entertainment then they can get on tv or thoughts of trying to relax and roll avoiding as much injury as possible.
I was about a mile and half into my run and having fallen my immediate thoughts were what hurts ? Well my left hand was painful a quick glance confirmed that I had cut my hand , my left leg was also sore , no cuts but certainly grazed. I also felt a bit winded and most of the impact on the ground had been to my ribs. My glasses were in one piece as were my IPOD.
Within a few seconds I was running again and trying to appear that nothing had happened. Not that anyone stopped or perhaps even noticed. My run became more of a jog and feeling sore, muddy and a bit winded I only manged just under 3 miles.
The grazes are no problem my worst fear is that I have again cracked a rib, though I am hoping it is just bruising and in a days time I will be able to run.
