I played out the set mostly without pain or restriction, so I havnt done any ligaments surely?

It just blew/seized up the next day.
Impossible to say without an exam but generally speaking if you do something structural you would be aware of it at the time, next day more likely to be a wear and tear issue, osteoarthritis or cartilage deterioration.

If it is still giving you trouble in a day or two it would be worth getting it checked out, weighed against the risk of corona of course.

On the shoes, the type of shoe is the key. A shoe designed for running, cross training etc is designed to grip, whereas a court shoe for netball, tennis, basketball etc gives a little on the court surface which is much kinder on the joints. You would be amazed how much difference it makes.

what year/s Mr.T?

My boy is in year 11.

I found a clip on youtube of the killing floor in an abattoir

and said

'do 4 hours school a day, everyday, or youlle work somewhere like this for 40 years'

I used to be a primary teacher, and there's a large proportion of everyday spent *smile* about.

I reckon 2 hours learning a day is plenty for primary, 4 hours for high school.

and don't forget, that watching a family function/cope/thrive/grow in a crisis is profound, once in a lifetime learning.

Two young ones, grade 3 and 4, and 1 in Uni which doesn't count (in a good way)... the problem is that Teachers at our school want to run the day to a similar schedule and there were more than 3.5 hours scheduled work... if they did schedule 2 hours, it would take 4 to do with all the whinging and moaning. :D

There were many tech issues from the teacher side too which to be fair it is the first day... I think tomorrow and the days following they will be more realistic with what can be achieved with isolated teaching.

We are fortunate that our eldest completed year 12 last year, can't imagine the stress of 'finishing' students this year.

Hope your boy (and all kids) goes well.

EzyT is so right, especially for primary kids they just need a few hours of work to keep their learning ticking along. Kids do a lot of learning outside structured activities too.

I do wonder why they haven't been looking more at the material already produced for distance learning students. I know there is an obsession with using technology but these materials already exist, can easily be sent out (paper copies would be good because paper is compelling technology - it works, even when the WiFi is down!).

Our daughter's problem is the opposite, doing a Master of Teaching and teaching rounds postponed, until when nobody knows.

Spot on dav.
I would rather the kids have books without always relying on a computer.
Our area has the worse network coverage too which makes it 10 times worse.

Yep, and not a lot better to watch the second time around.

It's remarkable that we managed to lose that game. With 48 seconds to go we are 10 points up and have free blokes everywhere.
We are the best at getting slapped by knobs that aren't even AFL footballers.

That dud Rickman we had at the time, dropped a sitter.
Plus we had chances to go forward but we tired to slow the game down.

still sticks in the craw. The 3 years of flags and domination have generally eased the pain, but geez that hurt.

Perhaps go up to Dan Murphys at half time, tip a Jack Daniels and Coke on the floor of the walk in beer fridge and stand in it for 5 mins before taking a slash against the back wall. That should replicate the MCG toilet experience.
