I do hope so.

I know Norway has a lot of gas and oil reserves - about as much as the UK but only a 12th or so of the population ?
Iceland has geothermal power and fishing - and is basically the population of Leicester - so plenty of fish for everyone.
Switzerland - well it hasnt had to rebuild after world wars - and have you seen the price of toblerone and Lindt.

I'm not sure they're quite the same as the UK ?

But they have to pay for being in the EEA and accept free movement, two of the main things the leavers were against. We'll probably be the same if we want free trade with the EU so how exactly are we going to be better off??

It's a stupidity epidemic! 

A guy called Adam from Manchester was interviewed on TV this morning. he voted to Leave thinking that his vote wouldn't count and is now worried about the outcome.

Holy shit, the future of the country has been decided by cockwombles  like this 


I'll see your Adam and raise you a WHOLE FUCKING COUNTY.

They certainly won't see a penny. I really hope this all works out well and we wonder what it was we were all worried about, but...... I think we're screwed.

What is wrong with me?

Your description above of where the pain is does sound like that after pushing really hard after a tough race, tight muscles. I read that you use a foam roller, that'll help if used properly and regularly but the root cause is likely your body complaining about doing things it's not used to. It'll ease with time and a slow build up, you'll get there, just be patient

Broken wrists :(

Oh no! Bad luck, hope you feel better soon!

Sounds like you are doing a bit too much too soon. Normally 5-6km then an 8? That's nearly a 50% increase in distance - this just sounds like fairly typical overuse pain. Have a look through the injury forum, loads of people in the same boat. Build up very slowly and no more than a 10% increase in time or distance. But you'll need to cut right back for a while until things settle down then start a slow build up again.

I should point out that, given that I'm easily identifiable on here, and am in a vaguely politically sensitive job, I don't usually do politics on this site.  This is my one exception, as I really fear we are about to make a major error.

Same here but I would just say 1 I'm in and 2 this thread has provided plenty of sensible and reasoned arguments (on both sides, just) so thanks one and all - my OH is undecided so I'll get her to read through to see if it helps her make a decision.

HOW much?!!!

If you want something 'chickeny' but different a Guinea Fowl is rather tasty and only about £7. £48 is ridiculous but if you have the money to spend and want to then why not. They'll soon stop selling them if the market is not there.

I had a similar issue with HR on each run being 10bpm higher than normal which although I didn't ignore, I did though keep at it. I'm sure you'll be fine but one word of caution in that I kept having to slow down to keep my HR okay until eventually I stopped altogether. It took 9 months to recover from that and I then went back to normal training for the 10bpm increase to occur again. Kept having to cut back until yet again I had to give up. That was 2010 and still not running. Please take care and respect the warning signs from your body. Hope it clears up soon.

I want to do it but very apprehensive!!

Why not speak to your GP? I'd have thought c25k a good thing, not too much running and by strengthening you may help protect your joints. Swimming could also be worth considering too.

I'd take it very easy until your HR returns to normal, how is it on waking? Perhaps you've either overdone it or maybe you are fighting an infection/virus. Definitely take a break.

What's with the massive video advert halfway down the threads?
