Yesterday morning when I took Lucy for her walk I slipped and fell on the ice, and in doing so I cracked my head against the curb. I didn’t really think much about it at the time- I was more embarrassed about someone seeing me. I got right back up and continued on with my day…
After being at work for a couple hours my head started to hurt, I was dizzy, nauseous, and couldn’t focus on what I was doing. Long story short, my husband came and took me to the emergency room. 6 hours, several tests and a cat-scan later I was released after being advised there was no bleeding or swelling, so it’s “just” a concussion.
I’m feeling okay today – just a headache and still a bit dizzy, but other than that I’m good. I’m more upset about ruining my running streak. And to top things off my new shoes came today, but I’m not “allowed” to run for 72 hours which equals Thursday. Ugh!
So that’s it from this end. Lucy and I are spending the day in bed watching season 7 of Doctor Who.
XXXs and Oods, Laura

Sorry you got hurt. Rest well! Xx
Thank you :)
Be sure not to run too soon! Concussions are nothing to mess with! I can’t remember when I started running again after my concussion last year – I know it was at least a week or two. I had to be headache-free for a period of time before I was allowed to run.
Sending well wishes your way! No worries, you’ll be back to running in no time!
Thanks :) I think I’ll be good by tomorrow afternoon. I will take one more rest day today no matter how much it kills me!
I’m sorry to hear about your accident! Enjoy your few days off. Those awesome shoes will be waiting when you’re ready again!
Thanks! Is it wrong that I wore them for a couple hours while just laying in bed? ;)
I hope you are feeling better!
I am, thanks!
