I can't believe it happened again today -- I fell again this morning. Holy crap! I've been running for about a decade now. I've rolled ankles a few times, and I think once my hands even touched the ground, but I stayed upright. Once a friend fell right behind me and she pushed me as she fell into me, but I stayed upright.
Then this year happened. I had my big fall in March. And I posted a shot of the scene of the crime. My finger is STILL jacked up from that fall. I finally have an appointment for my finger on May 9. Can't get here soon enough because it still hurts and has a limited range of motion.
Well, this morning was our last group run of the spring training season. So I baked for my group. Last night I made pumpkin cinnamon chip muffins. I woke up and was so excited about it.
I always go through a mneumonic to make sure I don't forget anything in the morning before I work out, and I actually forgot to do that today, so I showed up with no watch! Oops. No big deal. Everyone in my group seems to have a garmin too, and we were running a loop, so there was no worry about knowing when to u-turn.
Anyway, we finished our last 6 mile run together and the group was stretching and I ran back to my car to get the muffins. I had them in my hand and I was running back to the group and I must have tripped over a little pothole in the pavement.
And so I went crashing down. Again.
Ugh. I kept the muffins upright though! And this wasn't anywhere near as painful. The biggest scrape is on my elbow, but I caught both hands and a calf, but it's all just scrapes.
Still shocking that I seem to be jinxed right now! Oh well, just glad it wasn't worse.
