Running through a snowstormby Ryan on Wednesday, March 6, 2013 (5 comments)
Here in southeast Wisconsin, we dodged a bullet with this week's storm. We got snow but not like Minnesota, Illinois and other parts of Wisconsin did or the mid-Atlantic region is expecting. That said, we've got our fair share this year. I, for one, appreciate the reprieve this time.
Good post, Ryan.
Oh my goodness, I wish you a speedy recovery. Even as I was reading the first sentence, I was going to reply saying that those days you describe are absolutely the most scary. There are so many hazards and, if you're an early morning or late evening runner who is running in the dark, they can be very hard to see.
I was very lucky on my run this morning wityh those patches of fresh and very smooth ice. I slid a couple of times but never fell. I was ecxeedingly vigilant at shifting my viewpoint to try and catch any light reflecting on the ice, avoided some, slid on some. I am shorter so my center of gravity is lower be default and that helps.
Thanks for the wishes for recovery. As I said, it is very mild as concussions though, but what I've read indicates that those are sometimes more dangerous because the symptoms are so mild that people ignore them and do not take precautions against further injury. It is not impacting my work or anything. My only symptom is the headache and that is not at all severe or inhibiting. Often I don't even realize that it is there unless I think about it.Quote
Glad to hear that it's not too bad. Hearing stories like yours of "very mild" concussions makes me glad I'm not a football player. If that's very mild, I don't want to know what a bad one is. Keep safe.
