It is inevitable that this time of year you get struck by a bug, but also many accidents that occur can be in your own home.
In the middle of November I went downstairs to help shave the back of my husbands head to give it a bit more shape and get rid of the hair at the back he couldn’t get too. I mucking about as I walked down the stairs not paying attention, slipped, bent my toe and my leg, causing excruciating pain.
I took it for granted but for the last 3 weeks since it happened I have been suffering the implications. Not being able to walk very far, and now every time I walk, even though it has gotten a lot better, I get a really bad pain in the top of my leg, like a twinge and gosh does it hurt.
Now I have to be really careful any wonky pavement or uneven bit of ground, it goes. I still have a sore toe from the fall, and it taught me a massive lesson.
Don’t take accidents in the home for granted.
I also got struck down by the Nora Virus which left me feeling tender, so my training as been put on hold a bit. I have got back out walking and a twinge isn’t gonna stop me, but has made me put a delay on my training, knowing I really want to get properly into it, but no point training if you have an injury that could get worse or when unwell.
Today I am going to fit in some weights and floor and the same tomorrow, but all because I took my eye of the ball I now can’t put in what I know I can do into my training, so no running until my leg properly heals.
Lesson learned. Be careful in the home,
Wooden floors wear slippers with a good under foot grip just for walking, a good comfortable pair of indoor trainers, bear foot making sure the floor aren’t wet in any areas and and make sure all floors are cleaned and clear before training
No playing about on the stairs, children will copy and the last thing you want is for them to have a fall. Being a parent you do have to set an example
Sanitise and clean all areas which can come into contact with all person’s in the household’s hands. Example: Door knobs, sponges, toilet flush, door locks, taps and hand towels
So train but remember to keep safe.
