Flesh Ripping Friday: Ouch! πŸ€•

Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 8/12 – Day 5…6 Miles (9.66Km)…πŸ’ͺ🏼

Hi all. Well at least it wasn’t the weather that crippled me today…It was the other obstacles on the trail! As i’m typing this the shin of my left leg is still stinging, after i got forced off the trail by a wall (about 4 ladies) simply wouldn’t move, so i veered off the trail right into a thorn bush! I knew it was a thorn bush of some kind when i continued to walk as the flesh was ripped off my shin as though a zombie had hold of it. The pain continued for the rest of my walk (about 4 miles)…And when i got home my lovely wife Sarah instantly put some Germolene (‘Germo-scream’ as i call it) so it’s still hurting now. 😨

It could’ve been worse though…As just before my shin ripper a dog (it sounded like a huge werewolf) growled and lunged at me as i quickly (like a ninja, lol) whipped my hands up from my sides as the dog flew past where my right hand had just been! The owner quickly shouted at the dog so my quick reaction had saved me from a possible severed hand, phew! πŸ˜₯

This is turning into quite a challenge…I had no idea when beginning this challenge that i’d have to cope with things like these, i thought i’d only have to deal with the thousands of other difficulties my sight loss brings…And the fact i could never walk as far as 26.2 miles (a full trail marathon)…But i’m nothing but determined, lol! 🀣

Let’s ‘FitBlitz’ 2022 together!! πŸ’ͺ🏼

Today’s Word: blandiloquence

complimentary speech; flattery

Sarah told me to add a definition as she says i’m probably making half of the words up, lol! 🀣
