    Before the lockdown, I used to run into and out work (about 22km a day). Since the lockdown, I've been working from home and I've become lazy - only doing a 12km run in the morning (Mon-Fri).

    During the day, every time I go for tea, I put on the kettle - then do 10 hammer head pull ups, 20 squats, 80 pushups, 40 situps. By then the kettle has boiled, I make my cup of tea and then do a final 10 hammer head pull ups and 20 pushups.

    The problem is that I go for tea at 8, 10, 12, 2, and 4. The easiest solution is to drink less tea

    Problem I have in the current shutdown is my runners are toast, and feet are starting to suffer. (my spare pair are in the office under my desk) I can't do online purchase of trainers. I have to try before I buy.
    Hopfully shoe shops will reopen soon.
    Could you get the exact same ones online?

    Which garmin watch did you get? I was considering investing?
    Was hard the first 4 weeks, home schooling for 2 and just the back garden for exercise

    My 30 minute/10km commute is now reduced to 10 mins (checkpoints aren’t normally too bad). Im luck I work in an essential industry and still have a job, i work from home to reduce exposure about 3 x half days a week but they are still full days)

    Garmin Forerunner 645 Music (apparently got a great deal on Black Friday), awaiting Bluetooth headphones which means you can play music without phone etc on you. I haven’t used full functionality but there is reviews on YouTube

    I’m fortunate to have a nature trail / cycle path / forest path near me with some hilly bits (it is Wales) so I’ve been walking the dog 3 miles a day in about an hour (measured with a Garmain), and a rowing machine for 30 minutes a few times a week. No running, my podiatrist says my feet aren’t up to it (with a blister that turned into an ulcer on the sole of one that’s taken over a year to heal, the opposite ankle permanently in a brace and only four toes on each foot, she’s probably right!). At least I don’t need the walking stick any more (except for show!).

    With the amount of alcohol consumed increasing and the amount of people doing “essential exercise within 2km of their home” we will the fittest alcoholics in the world ..... but seriously.

    I was on self isolation more or less since the schools closed for 3.5 to 4 weeks. Thankfully mild symptoms for kids and tests came back negative. For those weeks I did 2km run in the well sloped 10 metre the back garden or 15-25 mins Joe Wicks HITT session most days. On 2 occasions 5km in the back garden.

    Since we got relative freedom, for 2 weeks I did 4.5km run every 2nd day with a 15-30 mins Joe Wicks HITT session on the other days plus 1 rest day.

    This will be my 2nd week of upping the mileage with a 7km run once a week, 2 x 4.5km runs (sometimes a bike ride instead of one of them) and a 15-30 mins joe wicks session on the other days and a rest day.

    I got a Garmin watch for Christmas best present ever!
