Under the canal bridges the tow path is paved with smooth engineering bricks. It was on these that I slipped and I guess that I caught the edge of a brick with my knee.
Still waiting to go into surgery having not eaten or drunk anything since last night 'just in case'. I'm starving and feel rotten, which might be due to lack of caffeine.
Phlebotomist has helped to pass the time by poking around in my veins.
They pumped me full of antibiotics and I'm now home being pampered. I have to go back tomorrow for trauma surgery!!! Not as dramatic as I'm trying to make it sound - the nurse thought she couldn't clean it properly with the traditional iodine soaked scrubber so doc will have another go in the morning.
Speaking of lunchtime runs, I went for a quick 5 miles along the canal today, slipped on some mud and sliced a chunk out of my knee. Currently in Central Birmingham A&E waiting to be seen by an orthopedic specialist as they can't get all the gravel out using conventional methods.
I've also raced McF a few times, but not many due to childcare constraints.
Well done to the weekends xc'ers. Interesting comment about running through the middle of the mud Tommy. Could this be due to the mud round the edge being stickier than the deeper but more sploshy stuff in the middle?
