Training run and mishap!
Today, I ran with Claudia, up PG&E and Black Mtn. This was my opportunity to practice downhillÂ running, so I tried my best to run quickly but carefully going downhill. On the way down, after BlackÂ Mtn but before the bottom, 8 miles into a 13 mile run, I fell to the ground. I tripped on some rootsÂ and rocks, and slid a short distance, and scraped my knees and one elbow. My left wrist also had a fewÂ scratches. My left wrist hurts, it feels sore but doesnâ€™t feel like anything is broken, just sore from theÂ fall. My knees will never be the same.
Update the week after the run: This whole week after the fall, my knees hurt so bad, it is difficult toÂ walk. When standing up after sitting for a while, it feels like pain goes straight to the knees which makeÂ it difficult to walk. It doesnâ€™t feel like anything inside is broken, just feels like it is on the surface butÂ the nerves are feeling it. Update after healing: It took 3 weeks for those knees to heal and Iâ€™m up andÂ running again!
