wrist fracture
#1
thought i better take my canyon out to check it was riding properly the evening before the calais ride. riding along alley needed to dodge a couple walking. that small pile of rubble should present no problem. fine it didn't but the couple of bricks/blocks the other side caught my front wheel and i went straight OTB. woman said that'll teach me for showing off. i agreed to the showing off part. rode off. next day got plaster cast in hospital.fractured bone in wrist near base of thumb can't remember which one, they mentioned which one it wasnt as well. next appointment 9th for assessment.

gutted no riding for who knows how long...

Doh, bad luck dude! We wondered where you were yesterday. It's probably the scafoid you've broke, did the same myself at the Bull Track a few years ago. Get well soon.

Yup, sounds like a Scaphoid. Although that's probably the one it wasn't as its unusual to cast it so quickly, they normally wait 10 days to confirm the X-ray.

Thanks.
It's just a temporary cast and not a full cast. They'll decide if it needs a full cast on the 9th or if it only needs a splint.

This whole urban thing is taking a bit of getting used to.

Uhhh. Fed up of getting a lift to work everyday instead of cycling. Hate sitting in a car stuck in traffic... ...watching fair-weather cyclists ride past. Will be so glad to get back on the bike. Almost am ambidextrous with mouse now at computer. Walked the 4 miles home from work a few times. Did a five minute jog on one of the walks, and calves ached for five days after. Last Friday did two five minute jogs (with a minute or two between) and am not quite aching so much. Not sure if jogging on footpaths between fields is the best place to start but there's less people to see me and no traffic fumes. Ankles ached a bit. Jogging feels really hard work, but it kind of makes me want to get into it a bit.

Are you gonna end up being another person giving up biking for running? Don't do it, you don't NEED to run the sodding London marathon!
