Of course, it was icy outside tonight and I managed to slip and fall on the steps outside the rec center on my way in.
Now this is hugely embarrassing - especially with my anxiety disorder. I picked myself up as quickly as I could, gave a lil "I'm OK" wave and rushed inside.
A woman inside was all, "Oh my goodness, are you alright?" And I said, "Fine."
Then I bounded up the stairs to the track as quickly as possible so I could take a peek at my knee in private.
No blood - just bruised.
1G1D1Y said that it really looked more like I suddenly bent down to tie my shoelace - so I guess I didn't really embarrass myself but I kept freaking out about it.
We did a bit of jogging this time. Just in small spurts.
However, I had to hold my pants up with one hand and put my other arm under my boobs (though I was wearing a sports bra) to keep them from going all over the place.
It was so ridiculous that it was hilarious and I was partially wishing I'd had my camera so I could have videoed even 30 seconds of that for you all to get a big kick out of!
See I can laugh at myself when I want to or when I am OK with other people doing it. It's just when it's out of my control that I freak out a little.
Anyway, 51 minutes tonight to get our 5 k done.
If I hadn't fallen, and been tired and had to hold up my pants - I might have been even faster.
