It's been an interesting fall

Tuesday I was out walking the dog.  We were walking the neighborhood, I was listening to a podcast.

And I fell.  And fell hard!
I learned a few things as I lay on the ground:

  1. Thank goodness I put the loop of Misty's leash through a belt.  If she was in my hand, i might have been hurt worse.
  2. My poor knees.  My right kneecap is still hurting.
  3. I don't know how the hell I fell, but I DO know that it was hard and fast
  4. I bent my fingers back, and must have snapped my head back as I hit the ground.
I left work early that day because my beck was killing me.

The next morning I woke up and could hardly move!

I went to the chiropractor.  Yes.  I gave myself whiplash.

This is not the first time I've fallen so hard that I've injured myself.  A few years ago I fell in a parking lot and busted by face.

I hate to say it, but I've not been out for a long walk or a run since.  I'm a little scared to.  Thankfully after this weekend I don't have another race to train for.  I can focus on inside workouts that have a soft carpet for me to fall on.
