    General Lucifer, Ocelot Gruber, you know the sort.

    I genuinely don't think I say anything bad on twitter - it's pictures of things I've seen and some shit in-jokes, like everything else on twitter I guess.

    I'd feel a lot happier about Chris Froome winning if he hadn't blocked me on twitter :(

    Update to my ankle issue - it's now painful to the point that I didn't sleep much last night and I can't walk properly. Maybe I should go and see someone about it...

    I'm after an internet diagnosis: I've got a pain just above my right ankle (maybe 5cm above the ankle itself), on the inside. It hurts if I put any pressure through my foot (walking, running, cycling) though not enough to stop me doing any of these things. It feels tender when I prod at it. What could it be? Do I need to amputate?

    Top work on running 5k, lady! Definitely give parkruns a go, they're nice and low key, people are generally friendly and often there are people running with dogs!!

    I have two pieces of advice: firstly, try to do 3 different runs each week - a short fast one, a medium one and a long slow one. It's less boring that way too! Up to you what those distances and speeds are. Secondly, learn where all the public toilets or friendly pubs are. Just sayin'.

    Mine clicks when I walk, run and cycle. Doesn't hurt at all, I only really think about it when other people say "what the hell is that noise?"...

    Yep, Parkside Pool. In some ways it's a good pool - about 8 lanes, diving pool, flumes (!) - but it drives me nuts too. The university is building a new olympic pool but in the meantime I should go to the lido more often.

    Definitely the slow people know they're holding people up but they don't give a fuck. I now don't swim to the end of the lane and turn round and swim off in front of their faces. I need to get faster so I can move up a lane.

    I've always found Brixton Rec to be worse than useless in managing people swimming about all over the lanes. Even when I've complained they've not given a toss. This was a while ago though!

    My local pool gets busy after work and I've been "accidentally" kicked a few times, also had people making shitty comments when I've asked if they can let me overtake at the end of the lane, like I should be happy hanging about by their feet. By the end of my swim I'm usually quite pissed off and on my last swim I kind of lost it at a group of kids stood in the lane having a chat... no violence but some shouty words...

    I would like to buy a small running-related present for someone, about a tenner. Any suggestions? I was thinking of a voucher but it's a bit boring.
