    Tricks for getting wetsuit off feet/ankles?

    I use the same lube for neck chafing on my ankles and wrists to assist with removal.

    Weak ankles and trail running

    These plus a single legged squats & single legged deadlift (body weight) can help with ankle stability by address the hip, knee, ankle (done correctly) Maybe get a Physio to assess your hip and knee stability as well Trail running is great for the body , persist with it!

    This - years of study at the elite level of endurance athletes show the sweet spot is 80/20 for loading the body for optimum performance. This allows consistency of training over years and improved performance, its a long term game.

    A disc should only be used on courses that don't have a consistent cross wind. Their ideal use is head and tail wind and up to a certain yaw angles. Someone with more engineering knowledge can provide more info.

    Stages Power Meter

    Yep and add the cost if you need change cranks later ? Also research stages drop outs with head units , they might have changed that with their product versions. If you have BUPA private health you can get 20% of the vectors, not sure on other private funds
