12:30 pm - ow.

I dropped a 5 pound weight on my foot.

It hurts.

Thanks for the sympathy on my previous post. :) I was fishing my had weights out from under the stuff on the sofa, where they were covered with stuff after the Water Event occurred. I set one down on the dresser next to me and bent to get the other one, when the one on the dresser decided to roll off and land on the outer edge of my foot. It hurt like hell, naturally, and I spent most of the day unsure if I'd broken anything. I finally decided I haven't - it's still sore and if I bang my foot into anything it's OMGOWCH, but I can touch it and apply gentle pressure without pain of the sort I think I'd have with a broken or cracked bone. So I don't think I'll be going to my doctor's after-hours clinic tomorrow. :) And I have a nice bruise, and a new way of walking quite gingerly to avoid any shoe pressure on the bruise.

Now I'm going to go see if I can get on the bike and cycle without putting too much pressure on it. :)

20 min, 3.5 mi.
Total: 149.7 mi. Heading east through the Chetwood.

Managed to bike on the foot, although I could feel the bruise. Am taking the injury as a Sign that I should not work out with weights today.
