Does healing burn calories???

Please tell me it does!!!!
This lovely Alpine Slide and I didn't get along so well today!!! 
I pretty much took a corner WAY to fast and ate it big time :(
This pain is not one of those hurts so good feelings! I think I honestly cried for a good 20 minutes. I usually am a pretty tough girl too. Among my first thoughts was..... Can I still ride my bike? 
All bandaged up emotionally shaken and puffy eyes from crying an all !!!
I am home from my vaca now and am sure I will be able to ride my bike, just not tonight like I had hoped.

Have you been on a Alpine Slide?

Alanna @ Blood, Sweat & Cupcakes said...

Oh my! That looks like a really bad booboo. What exactly is an alpine slide? I hope you aren't in too much pain :( Put your feet up, relax and heal up :)

Lori said...

Ow, ow, ow!! I would be bawling my eyes out, too.

I have never done an alpine slide, and now I don't want to!

Alanna @ Blood, Sweat & Cupcakes said...

Sorry, I didn't notice the link! It looks fun aside from the danger of loosing some skin!

The Black Kitteh said...

One of my friends walked away just like you! I am so sorry! It looks so painful!!!

I have never tried an alpine slide and after seeing your skin burns - I don't think I ever want to. Oh My Gosh - it looks really painful. I clicked on the link and the web site shows a mom and child and all I could think of was - what if this happened to a child!!!!
Hoping for quick healing.

oh my gosh you pooor thing.

i have done an alpine slide and i have some sort of memories that it was not a good thing. i also have problems with water slides.....

Heather said...

Are you in Winter Park? I came, I Alpined, I crashed - Big Time. I still have scars on my shoulder and it was nine years ago. I also tore up my calf and my face. I had to walk around all summer with a scabby face. Attractive. Everywhere I went people said, "Alpine Slide?"
I am sorry you crashed too. I hope you feel better soon.

MAJL said...

Awww...hope you feel better, and healing does burn calories :)
Last time I went on one of those, I was in grade 8 and they are deadly. Drink up some coconut water, lots of water, and chicken broth to heal your skin faster. Eating foods high in water also helps to heal.

Yes, healing burns calories. It must, right?

Liz said...

Oh man, I hope things heal quickly!! No fun to have burns. I love the alpine slide. I will remember to be more careful!

Clive Chapman said...

Ouch, I've fallen off and done damage to myself more times than I care to remember, but as the old saying goes, "If you ain't falling off, you ain't trying!" So well done for trying! :-)

File that one away as a learning experience and crack on, as I'm sure you will!

Cheers

Clive

Camille said...

OWWW! Now I'll know how to recognize you at the race tomorrow! :)

eclaires said...

I hate to admit it, but I too took a corner of the Alpine Slide too fast. It was 17 years ago. We were on vacation, and I was riding with my little sister in between my legs, since she wasn't big enough to go by herself. Or maybe she was, but she was just too scared. We'd been down once and got a thrill, so decided to go again. This time, I knew what I was doing (I was a pro) and so we went fast. Bad move. Not only did we crash, but the weight of her body bore down on my leg as it slid down the slide. I thought I was going to die.

I am SO incredibly sympathetic. It's so painful. And maybe you don't want to hear this, but I have recognizable scars to this day. Round whitish areas where there are no more freckles. :) AND, I've never been on the Alpine Slide since.

Heal quickly!

Kayla Bartkus said...

I Recently Went down an alpine slide in Colorado and got some burns on my leg and arm. When you got your burns how long did it take to heal?? Will It Scar?? Right now my burns are pinkish purple and it has like some spots on it, and what type of like medicine did you put on yours?
