Smiley Knee

February 14, 2014 — 2 Comments


During ride 1 of this morning’s 4/6/4 duathlon workout (specifically at about mile 3.62), a curb suddenly jumped up, causing me to trip and skid slightly on the (thankfully) wet sidewalk.  I’ve run this route many, many times without incident from said curb, so I am quite puzzled as to why he (or she) decided to be, frankly, a jerk.

The upshot is that I now have what looks to be a smiley face on my knee…though it also looks like the guy has a hickey on his neck.

OK, the other upshot was that because I run so early (this probably happened at about 4:40,) no one was around to see.

Of course I jumped up, ran the final .38 of R1 (doing a “systems” check), and continued with the rest of the workout!

Have a great weekend!

    Ow … stupid curbs and such.

    Nevertheless … good war wound photo! Whenever me or my wife have a spill we take photos. (So long as neither of us are really hurt that is.) I think there’s one of me somewhere of a fall on my bike when I was first learning to use clipless pedals. And we have 3 separate bloody knee shots of my wife! Ahhh … valentine’s day for sure 🙂
