    I broke Law 9 today....

    Never practise subway sprinting when it's been chucking it down. Got one of those frozen wine coolers attached to my right ankle with a towel at the moment - slipped going down the slope and went over on it hard!

    Thankfully it's only sprained, but it does put paid to any PBF for the next few days!

    Please no sympathy, I don't deserve any - it was my own damned fault for attempting to be too damned smartarsey! What do they say about pride coming before a fall...?

    No sympathy, my ear!!! You were trying to do something right and mother nature handed you a raw deal. I'm so sorry, chica. Hopefully, it heals up soon.

    Thanks me ducks, but it was clearly wet, I DO NOT possess any 'wet tyres', I could see it was wet, so it's a definite breach of Law 10.

    Now, I'm going to hobble/crawl up to bed and practise Law 10 with the Indie GK crossword.

    Keep it RICEd and it'll heal quicker: Rest, Ice, Compresssion, Elevation. Hope you get to feeling better soon!

    It's not so bad this morning (though irritatingly the weather's blatantly ignoring the forecast today and it's pissing it down again!) I know about RICE-ing (I've done St John's - though not recently, I really should renew my cert, you're supposed to every 2 years or so, IIRC.)
