My sister was visiting this weekend, and had a busy time showing her tourist spots...so got in lots of steps and had lots of fun...Then yesterday I took a work break to hike around the trails outside my office... and darn if I didn't trip on a rock and fall! The trail wasn't steep, but I was just walking fast and not paying attention...
The big deal in all this is that both of my knees are artificial, so as my doc says, 'you can do anything you want, just don't fall'... (among other problems, it is uncomfortable to kneel and thus getting back up isn't fun). But as it turns out, right after the fall, I realized I hadn't done any serious damage to the knees, but thought perhaps I broke a toe! Today, a day later, all the pain is gone from my toe though I have an ugly bruise (so, given the lack of pain, I am sure it isn't broken. Unfortunately, I know what that feels like...). But, I am generally sore, particularly my back and hips (which I think I rolled onto to avoid taking a hit to the knees)...
lesson learned: going to take my hiking sticks and good walking shoes even on short hikes and walks, and watch where I am going. In the meantime, I am feeling a bit sorry for myself and resting on the couch, though I'll be fine in a day or two...and especially feel a bit sorry for myself given that, unlike much of the west, the weather here in Northern New Mexico is pretty darn near perfect: sunny and warm with a cool breeze in the afternoon. Perfect walking weather. Sigh....
