It was Thunder Run this weekend, and on Saturday I ran an undulating 5km at 9am, a hot and hilly 10km at 3pm and a night-time 20km at 11pm.  I am now sporting four injuries.

Injury #1
A beautiful bruise on my shoulder acquired when I shut the car boot without moving out of the way first.

Injury #2
A first degree burn on my thumb acquired when I misjudged the water flow from the camping kettle as I made a cup of tea.

Injury #3
An interesting oval chafing pattern acquired when I applied a blister plaster in a dark tent and forgot to take off the hard plastic cover.

Injury #4
A bruised kneecap acquired after a careless encounter with a motorway service-station coffee table.
