I lost to....

The treadmill! Yes, you read that right! I was just getting into my run when I came down on my right ankle wrong, hit the belt with my left knee and tried to crawl my way back up to standing position. Who knew trying to crawl up a belt going 4.3 mph couldn't happen!? For me is was impossible. I finally quit trying to get back up while the treadmill was running and let myself hit the wall behind me.

I just knew the whole gym was staring at me by this point but as I sat on the wall taking my shoe off { by the way don't ever take your shoe off if you think you broke your foot} I looked around to see only one girl across the aisle ask me "are you ok? Do you need the first aid kit?" my reposnse," no i'm fine thanks

***under breath I think I need a stretcher!!!!***

I can't remember the last time I skinned my knee!

I was actually working out with a sweet friend/blogger {Rachel} when the incident took place. She was oblivious to what just happened when she saw me sitting on the wall. All I could say was, " can you turn my treadmill off."

I was able to get back up to finish my workout! I will say I have never seen anyone fall off a treadmill like I did. It's definitely something you'd see in a movie!

Thank God the group of guys behind me running didn't show up until after my fall.

Today, my knee and ankle is sore but nothing is holding me back from running/working out!

My first 5k {step it up} is this Saturday.

I also just registered for The Gate River Run 5k March 10.

Whats a post without Dodger! No he isn't spoiled one bit! What makes you think that?
