More downs than ups today ...

Posted on: 03 Nov 2011

Well, having had some ankle pain earlier in the week and been advised to back off running for a bit, I duly set out on a bike ride this morning.

I decided to go off at a decent speed to make it worth it and started well. And then I fell off. I haven't fallen off a bike for about 30 years and it bloody hurts!

I hit the pavement with quite a thud and seem to have left most of the skin from my elbow behind. Ow, ow, ouch. Also have a little bump on my knee and aching shoulders/back.  I think it may be time to call it a day this week and start again next week :-(

On the plus side, my ankle doesn't hurt any more ;-)

Happy running folks,
