I went down hard a minute in to my run today. I landed on my right knee, which has been throbbing ever since. I also cut my right ankle and scraped my right hand and left knee. I limped home (my right knee is rather swollen) and took pictures for my favoritest internet friends before cleaning it with water and hydrogen peroxide. H2O2 definitely burns, but not nearly as badly as I remember it burning in elementary school.
Anyhow, below are my injury pictures. They are a little bloody, so you’ve been warned.
Good thing I already had an appointment scheduled with the sports medicine/family practice doctor this week cause my knee is getting more and more swollen and painful.
Does anyone else find injury pictures endlessly fascinating? This must be why I ended up a scientist. Anyone else lose some training time to being clumsy? I have the grace of an elephant.
