What happens when you run into scaffolding?

Well, if you’re a proper geeky runner, you will:

  • [0-0.1 seconds] wonder what the hell happened
  • [0.2-1 second] switch your Garmin off
  • [1-2 seconds] fall to the ground
  • [2… seconds] check how broken you are

See, there’s hardly a break in my Garmin stats, tadaa:

The effect of jousting on running ... minimal!

There wasn’t much I could do ten days ago when a workman carrying scaffolding came around a blind corner (Google Street View – yes, that tiddly little alleyway between those huge bushes…) and did his best to impale me with his scaffolding. Thankfully, as all runners are built like Hulk, my huge muscular chest protected me from some of the impact.

The verdict was a cracked rib but nothing (hopefully) that will stop me from running a marathon on the 1st Jan… Of course, this has gone to the top of my list of excuses in case I don’t set a world record or something on Friday…
