Well can I join in too. I have also managed to fall over several times whilst running. I really don't know how I manage it. But I'll have to blame the pavements. They are rather uneven. One particular time I fell over I had to get my husband to come and collect me to take me home again.
But to top it off. Not only do I fall over when runnng. I also fell over in Tesco's on Monday morning. I slipped on a some cucumber which was left of the floor. And ended up doing the splits. Have never attempted the splits before. Hopefully, won't have to do them again. Honestly, the shop was full of people. And everyone made such a fuss. I felt such a Nelly.
But have managed two long runs since then. I am glad to say have not fallen over (yet).
Well I had arthroscopy last April. I went along to the doctor (who was also a runner). I was referred to a private knee consultant. As I have BUPA health insurance. Had an MRI scan and was told that there was a slight tear. And by running I would only tear the knee more. So went ahead with the arthroscopy. Where the tear was shaved off and all the loose debris all cleared out. The surgery was no problem at all. I had an epidural and was awake during the op. Came out that same day in the evening. Was a little bit sore for the first few days. Had physio and religiously kept at all the strengthening exercises I was told to do. I was running again in 6 weeks. Making sure I took it slowly to start with. I would not know that I had ever had arthroscopy done to my knee. It has nearly been a year since my operation.
Knee arthroscopy is now very successful in most cases I'm sure. There are a lot of success stories on this web site.
Just come back from a run. And guess what? My face is as red as a beetroot too. It doesn't matter what the weather. Hot, cold, windy, raining, snowing. My face always looks the same after a run. But this won't stop me running.
