This trail run started nicely where I had a nice relaxed even pace and for some unexplainable reason I fell. I felt I was running in an easy controlled manner so not sure why I lost footing at mile 2, except that it was an uneven trail. I fell about 3 weeks ago and am wondering whether I jinxed myself by saying I never fall. No road rash this time but the thing that happened which is just as bad is that middle of my quad landed on a piece of wood that was stuck into the ground and protruding about 6 inches. So essentially I got a nasty charlie horse. I limped away and although I could jog my left thigh was hurting quite a bit and I ended up walking and jogging the rest of the way. After the run I could barely flex my left quad and when I did bend it slightly it was pretty painful. In the 3 hours since, it has stiffened up a lot and right now I am having trouble flexing it. I'm hoping the ibuprofen that I took along with the Rock tape that I applied to the contusion will help it. Funny it hurts a lot and is very stiff but it's not very black and blue. I'm sure it will be worse tomorrow. No need to mention my splits since I walked and limped more than half of it.
