I have not posted for a bit, mainly due to the broken rib or two, broken elbow, damaged wrists and knee, and bruises, smashed glasses, and basically typing for more than a few minutes hurting.
So a simple PSA...
[yes, for those that are failing to put 2 and 2 together here, the injuries are a result of this shoe lace error]
If you have shoes with laces like this (Salomon brand) :-
There is a pocket in the tongue for them. It is no good just pushing them through the loop at the end to keep them out of the way (well, that worked on the previous shoes, but don't risk it).
Right, now time to pop to chemist for more pain killers.
Update: The stronger pain killers are helping, but very evident when they start to wear off, still.
