Bootcamp Fail

If we're already Facebook friends, you already know this, but I totally ate it at boot camp last night. During the second drill of the night, I jumped up from a half-situp position and started sprinting across the room and then all of a sudden, my world went grey and I went crashing down on my elbow and knee. I'm fine, just bruised and swollen and sore, but pretty pissed that I didn't get to finish my workout. And would really like to know if my blood pressure went too low or I have an ear issue or what.

I think I drank enough yesterday and it was pretty early in the workout that this happened. I had a good lunch. The only thing I did different was I was still pretty full from lunch (chicken and bean tacos) so I didn't have an afternoon snack - usually have a small protein bar - but I didn't have any other signs of low blood sugar or anything.

Even though the whole thing sucked, it's way better to have a sports injury rather than third degree mouth burns from eating the middle of a hot pocket too quickly after removing it from the microwave while sitting on the couch...this was a much more likely injury for me to sustain a couple of years ago. :-) So for now, I will wear my bruises with pride and go back and try again next week.

Battle scars! Although I did have to chuckle at the Hot Pocket injury :)

Hope the bruises/badges of honor heal up quick and you're right back in boot camp soon!
