Dangers at the gym

I had my Monday dose of Zumba today and it was great, but I hurt myself during the abs class afterward.
You’re thinking maybe I pulled a muscle? Nope. Maybe I strained my back? Nope again. I cut my ankle!

Leave it to me to hurt myself. We were working on our abdominals and I was using a resistance tube. When the instructor said to let go of one end of the tube I did, and ouch! It sliced a little bit of my ankle. I’m not a stranger to injury…trust me. I have fallen on and off a treadmill, dropped weights on my feet, and now this. You live and learn right? Well this won’t stop me from exercising, although I will be more careful next time!
Do you have any gym or exercise related injuries?
