D-Day minus 23, 13 December 2015: Black Ice
Don’t run on black ice!
By trying to maintain my level of fitness, I decided to go do a run after the first freezing weather of the year.
While running down the road I hit a section of black ice, and had a quite spectacular fall. Both legs my legs were up in the air and resulting in a heavy fall on my neck and shoulder.
Adopting the cautious approach with the trip coming up I went to the local A&E. The “system” took over and I was whisked to the new Cramlington Hospital for a CT scan.
Everything turned out fine apart from a mega headache! I thought it was just old grannies who slipped on the ice.It was shame to loose virtually a full day, but better safe than sorry.
