Have been too busy to keep up with this thread over the last couple of weeks. I've scanned back through - lots of really good training going on. Good to see people coming back from illness and injury too.
I had a good long run the weekend before last, and followed up with a decent tempo run last Tuesday. Slight niggle in my left calf after intervals last Thursday, but seemed fine until I set off for a long run at the weekend, and didn't get more than a couple of miles. I've been rather prone to calf strains in the past, and it doesn't feel too bad, so fingers crossed it won't stop me running for too long. It seems fine cycling (if anything it's better after a good ride) so did an hour on the rollers Tuesday evening and probably another hour tonight. It's reminded me to be more disciplined about using the wobble board I bought to try and help avoid calf problems, but which I don't use often enough
Interesting site. One issue with anonymising the policies is that it takes away the element of whether you trust a party and its representatives to follow through (or be able to) on what their policy says they'll do. It's all well and good agreeing with what a party says they'll do but if I don't believe them, or don't believe that they're able to deliver on that, I'm not going to vote for them on the basis of that issue.
In a lot of cases it was pretty obvious which policy came from which party, but once you complete it there's a link to a policy browser to read through them all.
For the record 1/3 red, 1/3 green, 2/9 yellow, and 1/9 blue.
I think the thing with broken ankles, and the danger of reading too much about it on the internet, is that "broken ankle" actually covers quite a range of different injuries, with very different recovery times. I suffered a broken ankle when I was hit by a car riding my bike a couple of years back. That was a single break (medial maleolus fracture - basically the knobbly bit on the inside) but I had to have an operation to have it pinned, was in a cast for two months, and off running for the best part of year. From there it's been a very gradual process to build the mileage up again, and it was a long time before I was running without any discomfort.
IronCat5 wrote (see)One thing I did notice is that she happily lets the bike wander from side to side. I tend to tense up when I get to the end of the rollers which makes the wobbling worse.
One thing it took me a while to get used to on the rollers is that, because spinning the wheels faster makes you more stable (gyroscopic effect?), pedalling harder can actually help get you out of a wobble. When I started, if I let the wheels wander too close to the edge, I'd panic and stop pedalling, which made things worse.
