I missed my first training run this week and I am actually super bummed about not following the program perfectly, but it was only 13km and I had a good reason.
It's inevitable. All runners eventually fall on a run. I fell 7km into my 8km easy run on Saturday. I have no idea what I tripped over but I fell down on the paved sidewalk HARD. I actually lay there for a minute stunned over what had just happened and in so much pain! I hit my right knee and my right shoulder pretty bad. I thankfully just seem to have superficial cuts and scrapes, but they hurt a lot and I figured I should just take Sunday off since my knee doesn't care much for bending while the skin heals.
Anyway, it sucks but I am just glad that I didn't actually injure any muscles or bones! And by some miracle I didn't tear my pants and shirt, which protected me from the brunt of the pavement. I am just taking a few days off to let the skin heal up a bit and then I will be back out there!!
