If we are still allowed, running and cycling.

If we are not, hiding in the garage on my turbo trainer, lol.
I had to sell my turbo trainer, I just could not get on with it. Even when using Zwift, I just melted even with a huge fan blowing and the monotony.

We will probably end up decorating, and fettling the garden when it’s dry.

Though I do need to fully strip down, clean grease and reassemble my MTB.

A lot of people phoning 5 live have been watching box sets, i don't think i could sit watching hours of T.V i don't watch much now.

Decorating seems popular, not for me.

You are still allowed to go out for walks a run or cycle ride etc as long as you keep yourself to yourself so no reason to go stir crazy.
I’m similar I don’t watch much tv, much prefer getting outside

Oh no! Someone warn the NHS!

Exercise, Gardening, DIY

Don’t you folk know these are life’s most dangerous pursuits?

Your "allowed"* out for a cycle or a walk/run but your supposed to keep your distance from anyone else

*obviously at this stage you can actually do what you like

I’ve had a cold this week was fully over it by Thursday but being stuck at home as work has for understandable reasons had a strict no,matter how mild don’t come in for at least 7 days no matter how mild the symptoms policy.

So have being spending my time reading and making use of my PS4. On Tuesday assuming it’s still running will be braving the trains to collect my laptop from work and begin working from home which should be interesting.

Could you get someone who drives or a courier to pick it up i wouldn't want to risk going on a train now.

Honestly with how quiet the trains are meant to be now part of me suspects it’s safer to take a train than to go by taxi (unfortunately our offices are locked down now so need to go in person to disable the alarm) and pick it up.

Whilst social distancing I won't be doing anything different. We live in the wilderness(ish) so don't really interact with others. There will be plenty of cycling, wood cutting, walking in forest and i promised the kids chickens.

A number of the online cycling platforms are free at the moment. I don't have a smart turbo and the weather seems to be turning and can't wait to hit the road

I did a quick 10 miles this afternoon, thoroughly enjoyed it. Hopefully I'll get a bit further tomorrow.

Perhaps it's just the government say just do social distancing but I keep seeing stuff (like from the NHS) saying stay at home
I think the original advice was stay at home then people started ringing the likes of 5 live to ask the experts if they could go out for a walk, run or cycle ride and they said yes as long as you keep yourself to yourself.
