Without the gym to get me out of bed in the morning, I’m in very real danger of being locked inside, getting fat and then depressed. I’m going to set up a bit of a routine for my days so that doesn’t happen. This morning I made myself get up and go for a walk and now I feel fantastic.

Lucky for me there is a really nice big park not far from my house and it has paths winding through it with people out and about walking an array of cute dogs. Some people are running but I’m never going to be one of those because running sucks. Have you ever seen anyone running who looks like they are having fun? No. Not unless they are running towards food.

I had no idea or plans for how far I would walk or for how long. It turns out I walked nearly 4km (2.4 miles) and it is a beautiful morning for a walk. So to keep my sanity in this bizarre horror shit show movie we all seem to be living in at the moment, I’m thinking my plan is this… A nice fast early morning walk. Then at lunch I’ll do some time on the foam roller to loosen up muscles and joints that are going to seize up from being immobile, which I should do a lot more regardless of lockdown. I’ll follow that with a short meditation to try and get out of the gloomy headspace that I’m sure will set in soon. I can already feel it looming a little and I’m not a depressive person. Before dinner and when I stop working it might be time to do some pushups, crunches, air-squats/lunges and dips etc.

Let’s keep moving everyone.
