You Hurt Yourself While Running in Place?Posted: April 19, 2011
I can understand being a marathon runner and complaining about running injuries. But hurting yourself while running in place? Are you joking?
This afternoon I completed a 3 mile run – but not without complications, my friends.
About 10 minutes into said run, I somehow tripped over my own feet and ended up hanging onto the handle bars for dear life. Think week-1 of The Biggest Loser. You know how someone always falls off the treadmill when Jillian cranks up the speed?
You now have a visual of my afternoon.
Although I didn’t fall completely off, it was pretty freakin’ close.
I jerked up faster than you could point and say “look at that moron!” Naturally, I was in the front row of treadmills, but I was too embarrassed to look behind me and assess how many people witnessed my clumsiness. Looking back, I think I laughed too loudly at myself. People knew I was humiliated. Damn it.
At least I got to meet Jamie for some fro-yo this afternoon. That made my sore ankle feel a little better 😉
Any embarrassing gym/workout stories you’d care to share?
