...while carrying my work bag, my lunch bag, and two reusable bags full of groceries. It was awesome. While I will admit I was in a hurry, as I squeezed in a quick trip to the grocery store, needed to put that stuff away, change, and get to bootcamp by 5:30, I was VERY aware of the ice, and walked carefully. And still fell.
Quick science lesson:
While our apartment's maintenance person did shovel a path for us, as long as there are 4 foot icicles 3 stories up that drip into the alley-way during the day, there will continue to be ice. I just need to be more careful. What is amazing is that for the past week I have routinely walked on this ice in 2-3" inch heels, while walking the dog, and a couple runs earlier this week, and didn't fall. And when I wore flats and tried extra hard to be careful, I fell anyway.
I landed on my left knee/shin (somehow...?) which did not feel good. My shin about 2" down from my knee is a little puffy and sore today. But last night I went to bootcamp any way and it felt fine. I'm guessing I just bruised it. I'd take a picture, but it's not purple, and puffiness doesn't really photograph well.
Which is why when I thought about doing an OnDemand exercise video when I got home from work today, I reminded myself today is a rest day. So I will follow my training plan and rest. And give my shin a day off.
And after MollyWaffles followed me all around the apartment while I unpacked and cleaned up a little, I sat down on the bed. And she quickly jumped up to join me. So I kicked my feet up for 20 minutes with her to pass the time until her 6pm kibble.
It takes a lot of convincing to get her to snuggle with you.
Time to go pick up soup from a nearby restaurant for dinner. I'm thinking chicken and dumpling.
While I have no exciting plans this weekend, I am looking forward to a 3 day weekend! My running plans for the weekend are easy: a 3 mile pace run on Saturday and a 5 mile long run on Sunday.
Do you have Monday off from work?
Do you have any fun plans for the (long) weekend?
