damn cars

Running was bad on Thursday ... and I ended up in hospital.

At about 8:20am whilst out running, about a mile (1.6 km) from my house, I had a little accident - not my fault though.  A short distance ahead, and travelling towards me, I saw a car skid on the black ice.  As the driver lost control I stopped running to watch where the car was going to end up.

Well ... it came to a halt by pinning me against a wall !!!

Luckily there was no physical damage done because, at the time of impact, the car had almost stopped anyway.  I was badly shaken though and went to the local  minor injuries hospital department just to check things over.

Ran again on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with nothing more than an aching thigh ... and that is almost non-existent now.

And the microwave oven has stopped working now.  Porridge now takes twice as long to make.  Need a new one soon.  But the fire will be repaired tomorrow afternoon.

Shame on you Chris, porridge is far superior cooked in a pan.

Jebus, being hit by a car, especially one skidding on ice, is one of my worst nightmares as a runner. Glad your'e okay.
