I recently began training for a half-marathon (Garry Bjorklund in Duluth, MN for those who care). Dang it! I was getting into a decent rhythm with my running program and I hurt myself.
El Hubbo and I went away for the weekend; Thursday night we dropped our dog off at a friend’s. I ran up to the house with our dog, tripped over a piece of the sidewalk and fell forward onto her concrete steps. I broke my fall with my hands, which probably saved me from a break, but my right thigh SLAMMED into the corner of one of the steps. INCREDIBLE pain. Saw the urgent care doc yesterday - had x-rays, the whole bit. He said it’s a hematoma that will need time to resorb; at least three weeks with no running. He said I can run when it doesn’t hurt anymore.
::sniff:: No fair!
Any Dopers with advice for hematoma healing?
