WHOOPS I Did It Again

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

I sometimes feel like I am being attacked as to not get to my goal. Today I feel on the treadmill, I seemed to increase the speed too fast went to 9 miles an hour too fast. I tried to lower speed and then I tried by pulling the rip cord, but the blet did not stop immediately. So I fell my left leg went off but my right leg did not. I burned my knee and my shin. One part went reallyu deep so it is very red. I was so upset with myself. So I just put A & D ointment on it and just back on the treadmill, just like getting back on a bike. I was not going to let it stop me for sure. SO I did 65 min and 4 miles today. Have to wear shorts all day to keep air on it. Looks worse than it is for sure, as long as I do not touch it.

You can get very discouraged when things happen like this, but I am more determined than ever to not let things like this stop me from my goal.

Just something new to share today. emoticon

    May your leg get better really fast. It took guts to get back on that treadmill instead of whining and not finishing.

    Aww man, that hurts me just reading it. Sorry bout the injury. Maybe you need to name your treadmill something like Myrtly's. Hers is Lucritia McEvil. Maybe you should name yours something like Bubba...short for Beelzebub.
    I am so encouraged by your enthusiasm. It shows how strong you are becoming!

    Owie - I was chugging along on the treadmill one day, vigorously pumping my arms, and caught the kill cord. Whap! Didn't hit hard, but it jolted me out of my zen state. Hope you feel better soon! emoticon
