Because of the rain I figured I'd hit the roads instead of the trails, and I set off for an easy seven.
First two miles were great. The rain was misting gently. Warming up, legs feeling good, ready to push it a bit:
Then, WHAM! I slipped while crossing a road and face-planted. My chin hit the ground hard, and gushed blood. Some construction guys came over to see if I was okay and offered me a towel and a bandaid.
I limped the two miles home. Total time: 1:03. No seven miles. A tender jaw and chin, and various abrasions and contusions everywhere.
Not the medium length run I was hoping for! I'm not the whiniest person in the house only because the baby has a fever.
I think I'm going to hunker indoors today, surrounded by soft pillows.
