I feel like bawling like a little baby right now!
I borrowed an old tape my mother had - Richard Simmons: Sweating to the Oldies - just to throw something different into my workout and maybe get a laugh. I was about twenty minutes in and it was going well, I was periodically giggling to myself about the onscreen antics and certainly not having any trouble keeping up, when... BAM!!!
I absolutely smoked my heel against the rim of the solid wood coffee table behind me as I was doing a basic hamstring curl! I am in so, so much pain right now! I honestly think I did some serious damage. I have an ice pack on it which I managed to procure after sitting in shock and agony for two minutes and then hobbling to the kitchen, using the walls for balance.
All I can envision is months of hard work being flushed down the drain by forced immobility. I hurt and I am scared and there is already a bruise and swelling. How could I have done this?!
