Ice Ice (Ice) Baby

>> Thursday, May 22, 2008

Yesterday, I wasn’t feeling too good. So I figured I’d go outside in the late afternoon and trim some grass around the front railing. The railing had other plans. It jumped out of no where and attacked me:


This is 6 hours after the attack,
after most of the swelling had gone down!

So, as I do every night, I laid in bed and iced my heel and my knee. Only this time, I added a third bag of ice to my forehead.



I’m such a dolt. Maybe I’ll have a sweet “racing stripe” for the duathlon this weekend. What a way to use (waste) my 200th post.

Sad. Hope your forehead is feeling better! How in the world did that even happen?

Also, I feel like an ice bath (if you could tolerate it might do you some good. =0)

It wouldn't be a Steve post if it didn't include some sort of graphic picture...

A wise man once said, "Ice Ice Baby". Well maybe not a wise man but we rocked to vanilla in college days.

OMG, I got "bit" by an eggplant once. But just on my hand.
Take care of yourself!

Poor baby, did you want me to come by and prop the pillow for you :), a racing stripe would look cool thou..

You know you should e-mail an underwear company so you can get some endorsements.

Amazing how often those railings come out of nowhere, you know? If a bag of ice does the trick, you should be fine for the weekend. And congratulations on 200 posts.

well, even if your head is sad, at least your boxers are happy.

Kim 9:30 AM, May 23, 2008

I knew I'd see blood in a post. It had been gone too long from your blog!

IronTriTim 4:04 PM, May 23, 2008  

Ouch. See what happens when you do house work rather than training.

trimybest 5:30 PM, May 23, 2008  

maybe th next time you try to get sponsors from your blog posts you should try for a company that makes ice packs.

J~Mom 6:27 PM, May 23, 2008  

Ouch! Stay away from that railing!!

I hope the railing looks worse than you do.

Get better soon!

I've been saying for years, "Lawn maintenance is a contact sport".....

Ouch! You can never trust that front railing...it's sneaky.

triguyjt 7:04 PM, May 24, 2008

Please don't run out of ice before you run out of injured body parts
