Hallelujah, it's

Today it has been bucketing down most of the day, which is making me go around grinning like a complete idiot because, HOORAY, I don't have to water the garden tonight. So, Hughie, just keep sending it down!

The only downside to this was that I had an outdoor client session this morning. Luckily there's a big picnic shelter at the park we use, and thanks to the weather, there were no picknickers today. It's amazing what you can do in a small space with a skipping rope, a couple of sets of dumbbells or medicine balls and some picnic tables and benches. Good thing Liz doesn't mind walking lunges...or maybe she's just not game to complain. ;-)

OK, so here's the most obvious result of my clumsiness the other day. It's still very ouchey, and the photo really doesn't do the huge technicolour bruise justice. Well, it's kind of tricky taking photos of your own knee! Anyway, there's this nice big U-shaped bruise surrounding the little graze and it still hurts like crap!

The ankle is giving me some trouble too - I'm going to get my chiropractor to take a look at it tomorrow. I'm assuming it's a minor sprain or strain, but it's making walking any distance or at any decent speed difficult. And I only have 2 speeds: extra-fast or stopped. Ve-e-ery frustrating.

LOL Just got your message Kek, no it is not weird to put a pic of your injury...I am hoping my ankle bruises up so I can post an impressive picture too - I have seen quite a few injury pics on sports and health blogs

Hope the ankle, and knee are feeling better soon.

Am i the only weirdo who likes lunges? Normal, walking, diagonal, pump, plyometric, backward, any kind! I need a life! As for the injury pic, if I only knew how to send pics from my phone to blogger then I would post my recent black eye!

Kek said...

Ooh, plyometric lunges - you just reminded me Liz...we might try those next time. Mwa-ha-ha!

The ankle's a lot better this morning, but my back is doing odd things and my neck is seriously out. I couldn't figure out why, but now I'm thinking those are probably a result of my fall too. Thank goodness for my chiro appointment this morning.

OUCH! That looks seriously painful. And I'm clumsy (ie, I'm always covered in bruises) - the only one I reckon I could top was from a drunken fall that left over half my thigh black and blue :D

The thing with drubken bruises is you usually can't for the life of you remember how you got them. Until everyone starts telling you... like: "What, you don't remember falling down the stairs?" ...."You must remember dancing on the table and falling off into that guy's lap!" and so on.

Not that I've ever done anything like that.

I've got fingers crossed the chiro was able to help and you are feeling 100% again really soon hun. Looks nasty.

Photos never show justice when you want to prove how gopry an injury looks :p
