Well, a couple of toes any way.

I suffered what would be best described as an "imapct" injury at krav last night. Now, I'm not 100% sure what happened, as I was looking at the guy I was kicking rather than at my foot. We were practicing stop kicks, I kicked and we both think he misread the line my kick took. Result - my tootsies met - I think - the edge of his foot. I think they bent under rather than back. I do know that it hurt quite a bit and sent me to the mat yelping and swearing. Amusingly I did manage to leave the imprint of my toes on his foot so not one he'll forget in a hurry lol.

It was just one of those things, no fault no blame and definitely no malice intended. Poor guy was more upset about it than I was - gave me a big hug at the end.

It was funny though; it was one of those classes where you got that kind of sense of 'impending doom' during the warm up. You know the feeling - that one that says run for the hills cos this is gonna hurt! I have a few lumps and bumps to go with my limp today. I remember pulling my neck / back as well, but again I wasn't the only one. We were working in a 3 practicing defence against side headlock and I think we all ended up with neck / back strains.

I've managed to make it into work, although I was swearing every time I had to change gear. I have to drive into town tonight, which is a bit of a concern. If my foot is really bad though, I will get my partner to come out and get the car.

Maybe I am getting too old for this malarkey ....

Ma poor wee tootsies a couple of days later ....


  1. ouch.

    hope it is not too bad. I broke a toe last year and it was agony for a couple of days.

  2. Ouch indeed!

    Hope its not too bad Avril? I dislocated 3 of them a couple of years back and that hurt.

    Get well soon.


  3. Hi guys

    I'm sure I'll live. I forsee a lot of swearing in the very near future though lol.

    speak soon.


  4. Oh and I will no doubt be an endless source of amusement for the troops at work. I could always hire myself out as a test subject for our student radiographers ....
