[personal profile] rmcf_walks
Today was supposed to be 16 miles. And it went very well, right up until 6.2 miles where I tripped and fell very hard, thumping and scraping one knee and badly bruising both hands. I briefly considered carrying on, but discretion won and I limped home (only about 10 minutes away) and cleaned up, and gave the knee a good long soak and plenty of rest. It seems to be getting better but I did resort to painkillers earlier.

I find myself feeling annoyed and cheated of my long walk, and will have to do more training on my holiday once I'm sure the knee is up to it.

I am sufficiently timing-obsessed that I stopped my stopwatch as soon as I'd finished falling and I've just mapped my walk as far as the fall site.

So: 6.2 miles in 90:15 => 14.6 min/mile Not bad, wish I knew if it would have held over the whole distance (probably not).
