Getting injured while running :-(

I fall over regularly, and my knees are all scar tissue. I tend to do it on the flat bits, and I suppose it is when I switch off and pay no attention to where my feet are going.

Ooo, sore point for me - literally! 5 minutes into my run, I tripped and crashed headlong into the pavement - not 10 yards away from where I'd performed the same stunt 4 or 5 years ago :-o

Paving's smooth and even but I don't pick my feet up, almost as if on castors. Grazed knee, elbow & hand & bruised shoulder :( Was going to return home but the red mist set in and I ran ten more miles, attracting some odd expressions on the way ;)
