The plan was to resume running tomorrow at Luneta Park. I've been on Christmas break for almost three weeks, and although I didn't binge much, I didn't exercise much either. In effect, I gained a few pounds hehehe. I needed to shed off some of those pounds as well as go back to my running routine to prepare for the upcoming Condura Marathon on February 1.
That was the plan until yesterday morning, I took a tumble down a flight of stairs, and my plan tumbled down as well. Well okay not a whole flight of stairs. I think I started falling right at the second stair step before the landing. I was bounding down the stairs, already running late for work. Next thing I knew, my right knee hit the stair step and then I fell completely on the landing. I got up quickly, bags still in my hands but the flashlight took a tumble all the way down to the second flight of stairs. I thought it was a funny incident and I was actually laughing to myself at my clumsiness, secretly hoping no one saw me do the unexpected acrobatics. I brushed off dust on my jeans from where I hit my knee, and then limping slightly, I walked all the way to the office, a little bit slower than my usual pacing. It's a 3-minute walk brisk walk for me, but no brisk walking just then.
