The change training run from North kesteven, North hykeham
It all started on 13th of July 2004 on a normal run with Tom and Tracey [2 other running mates] we had bean running about 5 minutes, when I stubbed my toe on a raised NTL COVER, and went flying sliding on gravel badly cutting my hands, knees and elbows grazing my self from the chest down. I got up thinking I could carry on but I was hurt too badly. I limped back to NK in a lot of pain Tracey helped me back.
I was attended to by a first aider who suggested I should go to Hospital to get cleaned up and checked over.I began to feel very strange and sick .Tracey went to get the car in the meantime I collapsed, an ambulance was called and I was rushed to A and E After bean examined I was told I had bruised ribs severe cuts and bruising to the rest of my body I was in of tremendous amount of pain after bean given pain killers and a tetanus shot I was admitted over night. After x-rays,blood tests and a cat scan and; 4 days 4 nights in Hospital from which I got very bad bed sores. I was released with a sprain to my right foot, the physio said rest it and you will be back running in 4/6 weeks Once home I could not do much as the pain was too bad, also. unable to use crutches because of my hands.
