I can definitely see that happening. I don't blame you for avoiding any steep hills. I enjoy an occasional small hill, but that's my limit! Of course, I haven't run outside in weeks. There is too much snow around and I am terribly afraid of falling on ice or snow. I trip and fell while running a couple summers ago (nice weather - I just wasn't watching my footing and I clipped my foot on a raised side walk). I took a terrible fall and looked like a victim of domestic abuse for a couple weeks. Now I just stay on the treadmill if the weather is bad. And right now I am SO sick of the treadmill. Next weekend it should be nice enough to run outside. Please!

I shouldn't laugh... but I too was the victim of raised sidewalk abuse. I was about a mile from home when it happened on a nice sunny day. I was dripping blood all the way home... and had broken my hand. I don't blame you at all for doing the treadmill when weather is bad... I get it! Course, I think I am likely to injure myself on a treadmill too... I tend to run like a drunken sailor. I just know that I am going to side step wrong and face plant right off the treadmill someday. (and this is why I run on it even less than even in poor weather)

Hope weather is nicer for you soon!!! Outside runs are my favorite kind!

I have been so bad about responding to this! Can not wait a moment longer. Your sidewalk incident sounds like mine. I was lucky I didn't break my wrist and I was covered w blood the whole way home. I couldn't get home fast enough. Then I was sure I had head trauma. I made Demny take me to the ER but I
Never went in. I decided I was fine. What a mess. I finally did get to run outside this weekend and it was wonderful!!!!!!

PLEASE don't feel bad about not responding.

Glad you got outside to run this weekend.

You can say that again. And when I showed up at home depot that same day the sales lady get giving me weird looks. By then the pain and stopped and the after pain hadn't started yet and I remember thinking, "what is she looking at" g Then - oh yeah!

Oh man! At least evidence of my fall was mostly hidden... except the cast... but my bumps and scrapes were covered.

Today was actually almost too hot! I bundled up like I normally have been and realized about a mile into my run that I should have opted out of some of the layers.
