It was pretty badly skinned and bruised for a good while, and for a few days it was swollen and a little infected.
Believe it or not, it's only just now improving - five weeks later!
The scabbing is over and it's beginning to scar, but the dark color is a fading bruise: it stayed blue and purple for about a month.
And I don't know if you can tell since to get the right angle I would have had to take this picture with my feet, but there is still some fluid in the right knee. It has gone down considerably, but the swelling is still bothering me a little.
|Gosh I need some lotion.|
I think this is my worst running fall, but not my most embarrassing. I slipped on wet leaves on the sidewalk once and slid into the street, forcing a little old lady to slam on her brakes and swerve, then overcompensate and hit the curb. She was rattled. I was fine - just a little muddy!
What's your worst (best?) fall story?
