I busted my butt!

Well, actually, I only bruised it (I think). Don't ask me how, but I managed to fall off of the seat of a rowing machine today and land coccyx-first on the metal track part of the rowing machine. Needless to say, it hurt. A lot. Thank goodness for ice and a trainer who knows when to push me to keep going and when to let me hold a bag of frozen corn to my butt and cry like a little girl.

I usually do great with rowing, too, and I've never had anything like that happen before. As I was lying on the ground gasping for air, I saw a biog blob of string on the track, and it didn't look like anything that would have come off of me, so I suspect that it was something that got caught up in the machine and caused the wheels to slow or skip while my body kept moving.

And that was my day. How was yours?

(PS: Green and teal bracelet is coming along great)


  1. Ouch! Hope your bum feels better soon.

  2. Ouch! I wonder how the string got there and didn't trip up the last person on the rower? Nothing like boobie-trapped exercise equipment, huh? I hope you're less sore soon!

  3. I had a class yesterday and the room was so cold I had to leave twice to run hot water over my hands.

  4. Ouch! Hope your bum-bum feels better before class tomorrow.

    But, I think I'd rather have your day than mine.

    How about having to find a new rehearsal time for a troupe of 15 people who all want the new schedule to work around themselves? And it's only a temporary time change for about 4-6 weeks which makes it even more difficult beause the prevailing thought, "If it's only temporary, why can't I have my own way?"
