I'm a klutz

by - Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Sorry for the late post today. I've been at a conference for work all day long and I'll be there again tomorrow, so tomorrow's post will probably also be late.

Don't have a ton to say today, so I'm just going to do some quick hits.

On the way to said work conference, I was hustling to get up the escalator so I wouldn't miss the metro train, when my flip flop got caught on a step and I bit it hard core. Banged up my knee so it's all nice and bruised and cut now. It hurt a bunch, but not as much as my ego. Lucky for me I don't think toooo many people saw, although I was afraid to look behind me to see how many people were there.

Because of my little spill, I'm not going to be running tonight. It's still a little sore when I walk so I'll throw some ice on it when I'm watching Biggest Loser tonight. I just can't win with all my knee issues. 

Thanks for all your comments on yesterday's post about BF and the IronMan. BF isn't a regular blog reader (he'd rather actually talk to me about running than read about it...hey I'm not complaining) but I did direct him to yesterday's post and all your comments. He's now re-thinking the whole IronMan thing, but will probably stick with doing a full marathon -- a goal I totally support.

Yoga last night was one of the better classes I've taught. We worked up a good sweat and focused a lot on planks and leg strength and flexibility. 

All right, that's all I've got for today. Blog reading will be limited the next few days. I promise I'll try to catch up as best I can tonight so I don't fall too far behind!

  9. O, man - why is it when we trip or hurt ourselves in public in some other way we're more concerned about our egos than the fact that we're friggin' hurt.

    "O, no, I'm fine foax, just an artery, is all - go ahead, go about your business, I'll bleed out and die in a minute, if I'm lucky, and then I won't be embarrassed anymore ..."

    Plus ... you tripped & hurt yourself in the metro in D.C. and there wasn't a stampede of Personal Injury lawyers coming at you to take your case?
