This is a question Self-Inflicted injuries

Spanishfly asks: Ever injured yourself in a moment of frustration? When have you ever done something stupid or sensible that has ended up with you injured? Punched an Asda sign because they didn't have tiger bread? Yeah, us too

This isn't a question about intentional self-harm

Advice I wish I'd been given
Don't try to jump a 40ft gap while kite skiing if there isn't enough wind.

Don't ski off piste in a white-out.

Don't cycle down the union canal at 4am after drinking all night or if you do, watch out for bridge supports.

If you're cycling downhill at 30mph in the dark and the rain, try to remember where the bends are.

If you've never done a particular power kite trick before, the first day of your holiday is ABSOLUTELY the best time to try it.

If you must drop a heavy suitcase in relief that you've arrived, be sure of where your foot is. Especially if it's the first day of your holiday.

Your friend Alex has a VERY clean set of patio doors. Watch out for them.

You know that thing that always makes your back play up? Never do it in a room full of people. Having to ask them to lift you off the ground because you can't move is embarrassing.

If you are cycling with spd pedals for the first time, don't forget you're wearing them. The indignity of toppling over very slowly in front of a line of traffic is worse than the actual pain.

Cleats are an inappropriate choice for urban cycling.
I learned this the hard way.

This is what lead to my spuds + associated stupid tap-dancing shoes completely failing to stay about from my bin after their maiden voyage.
