Today is the first day of my wife working from home.  (She's a divorce lawyer.  She'll be busy soon.  If anyone needs advice I'll pass on her details!) The 2 kids also being at home.  4 of us in a small terraced house.

Tomorrow is 14 days since Ive worked.  14 days since I was running a gig with the great unwashed.  I don't seem to have any symptoms so I am quite happy.

And In response to the question in the forum subject, Im doing cock all.  Again.  Except reading a book about a soul searching for its abandoned body and a boy's search for his friends corpse in a South Korean massacre.

Cheery stuff.

Little goals mate, I have been out once in the last 14 days but that was to Swindon a week today, so I am hoping that I can last another week with no extra symptoms then I will be as happy as I can be with another 11 week sheilding left.

The wife has always worked from home but shes busier than ever now with all her clients doing videos of fitness instructing via zoom or facebook so she has to organise that, its a bit mad at the moment.

Yeah, sorry to hear you've got to have 12 weeks.  All for the best I guess.  The little things on the other side are going to be massive pleasures, just going out for a coffee or anything like that.

Ive been to the shops but Im feeling really weird about going out running or anything.  It feels wrong.

It's not wrong, it's essential. Exercise is vital to both your physical and mental well being. Just maybe don't go running through the middle of Sainsburys!

We booked a trip to Iceland yesterday in the hope its sodded off enough by February to actually go.

Bit of a risk given no cancellation insurance for obvious reasons, but the flights were dirt cheap.

Always wanted to see the northern lights a cloudy sky.

What Paul said. Being cooped up, becoming less fit and in poorer mental health is a terrible health outcome in and of itself. There's a reason there's an exception for exercise, and unless you're super high risk or in a really difficult area, a sensible, socially distanced walk should be as close to zero risk as you can get.

I am still doing exercise, just not the running.  I did have a stupid plan that lasted a couple of days of doing 10k a day until the 5th of May (5th of May being the next day I have work booked in for.  Obviously it will be cancelled) that lasted 2 days.

Im now back using the garage to do HIIT sessions.  Which is enough.  Ive kind of fallen out of love with running.  I've done the limit of what Im going to do so unless I can work out some other target that really attracts me the garage it is.

Good idea Batch. We're thinking of a winter break at the start of next year. I'm beginning to think we may have quite a lot of holiday to carry forward into next year so taking advantage of the cheaper flights could be beneficial. Of course its a risk as we don't know how long this is going to go on but surely to goodness we'll be somewhere back to normal by Q1 2021?

Yeah sure, thats the only good one Ive got.  The left has an unrepaired ruptured cruciate ligament.

That's fair enough, each to their own and all that, but please make sure you're also getting out for a walk at least. Seeing some sky and getting some air is just as important for (mental) health as the fitness
