So, last Sunday Morning I woke up feeling very athletic.. I mean I had done really well all summer with Barry’s Bootcamp in Wainscott, Long Island. Supposedly it’s easier in the Hamptons than it is in NYC… but I found it hard.. but good. I am not spring chicken!!
Running on the treadmill was really fun.. although at times.. I just thought too fast … I mean 8.0 is fast.. but of course the 20 and 30 year olds were going 12.0 with not too much effort..
Okay.. so the summer ends and I am missing my work outs at Barry’s. So last Sunday I was deciding between the gym, a long walk around Central Park, or a run.. Unfortunately for me, I chose to run. All was going well, until the last five minutes when I decided, hey if I sprint in Barry’s gym, why not do it going out of Central Park..
And, off I went… full speed ahead… the next thing I know.. I trip and I am flying in the air, which seemed like eternity!!
I tried to support my fall with my hands, but there wasn’t a scratch (which I still find weird).. all of the weight fell on my poor left
knee.. And boy did it hit hard. I literally saw stars!!
I sat there in shock.. literally.. I couldn’t move.. I noticed that some people just walked by (jaded New Yorkers, or maybe tourists?) But, there were some really really nice people.
A woman asked me if I wanted an ambulance.. No.. (I must have really gone flying). Another woman handed me a bottle of water and said, “it’s new, I didn’t open it yet”. I think I took it.
A man lifted me up and asked did I want a taxi. Oh no,!! I didn’t have ANY MONEY! (LESSON LEARNED). But a really nice woman, I think her name was Regina (I had the where with all to ask) handed me a $20 dollar bill and said, “pay it forward”. BTW- I also didn’t have ID – never go running without ID!
A cop appeared out of thin air and got me a taxi. The taxi took me all of 5 blocks and refused to take money! NICE!
So for anyone who helped me last Sunday on Fifth and 84th…. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! NEW YORKERS ARE GOOD PEOPLE!!!
So, the next morning at 7:30 a.m. I got my x rays taken and sure enough I fractured the Patella bone in the knee cap! OUCH!
