A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I tripped on a sleeping policeman (speed bump) while running through a local school.
Well, it happened again and this time I didn’t manage to catch myself. 😦
I was running the route in the reverse direction, uphill, in the rain and dark, and I got past the one I tripped on previously.
Because of that I let my mind wander and take in the scene. Bang.
Suddenly I’m on the deck. Damned if there wasn’t another one lurking in the shadows, waiting to trip me.
When I went down I cut my knee, my elbow and my hand. I also scratched my glasses which I was carrying in my hand because of the rain; lucky they didn’t get totalled! I also broken the clasp on my knuckle light, rendering it useless.
By the end of my run my leg was a blooded mess. Turn away if you are squeamish.
It looks impressive but it was only a small cut that bled down my leg as I continued to run.
For the remainder of the run I was very carefully not to trip on anything else and used my knuckle light far more. I was determined not to stop the run because of it though.
The cuts have bruises around them and are a little sore but guess we’ll find out how bad they really are after a day or so. Hopefully no real damage.
So I ordered some new knuckle lights as I don’t want to be without those.
Life carries on but I’ll think twice before running that stretch of path again… Me and my stupid wandering brain. 😉
