So I'm walking at lunch time. Grabbed some lunch have my umbrella - just walking along minding my own business when WHAM! On foot goes out from under me! I didn't have a chance to even think. My hands were full of food etc so I couldn't catch myself and instead landed smack on my knee! I was to shocked and worried to be embarassed. And totally pissed off that I might have really hurt myself - and not even while training!
I banged the knee pretty good. Broke skin through my pants. there are even little marks from the pebbles that are embedded into the sidewalk. All of that I can deal with. What I don't know is what the impact is going to do internally. I've got it elevated and I packed on the ice. Guess it's just wait and see now :( Worse part is, training for a tri you use your legs for everything - swim, run, bike. there's really not one of those I can turn to if this knee desides it's going to fuss a bit after this fall. When I was lifting weights I could always focus on upper body if the lower gave out or vise versa, but this.
