Just a once in a lifetime (we hope!) situation isn't it.
I guess for the furlough-reenos, it's the closest thing you'll ever experience to "Gardening leave", which I dare say all of us have at one point we'd say we'd "love" to experience. Just without the full pay, and ability to go and do anything we want!!
So what's the most valid way forward? Doing something profound, learn a language, philosophise? Do a training course?
Is running a 10miler and relaxing on Netflix, perhaps with a bit of plant watering and cleaning, ok?
Probably yes for a few weeks. It's if this stretches into a few months!
Quick synopsis - working at home all the time now, last time I went in was Monday last week. Being in Workforce info in the NHS it's nearly 8-6 most days at the moment.but obviously job security is fine, so can't complain.
On about 50 mph, but looks like an injury reversal on the thread, I'm injured and everyone else seems ok! My left leg upper hammy/glute is quite painful on runs. Getting slightly better now I'm kneeling at my desk for 20 minute stretches and doing remedial stuff to try and get it sorted.
So didn't take part in the virtual relays and didn't have to join Strava either! HHH women won the womens 6 and 12 stage.
Lockdown wise, I reckon it will stay as it is, but last until the end of June. I fear that the autumn marathons won't go ahead, perhaps some parkruns might and the league xc meetings? Will have to see what happens. Shit got real today - the guy I share an office with, plus 2 others is in hospital with COVID-19.He'd been at home for3 weeks too, so god knows how he got it.
oh well, we'll soldier on. Stay safe everyone.
Cheers all. Got another message from my workmate again today - he's on oxygen but not put on a ventilator which is the big thing with this it seems. Praying he'll be ok. Good reps SG and running TR - Cycling Rich.
Seen some REEBOK Run fast for £89 online. Great review and might get them as an adios replacement as the Adios version 5 have awful reviews. Although wait for the Adios Pro? That's their 4% rival and £160 apparently. If they are nearly as good as the 4% Nike might have some problems as the Pro looks great (Like the Adios) and the alphafly? well probably the worst looking trainer I have ever seen. Going to be interesting.
They sound interesting SC - especially for those of us who still miss that Adidas Adizero Adios (tongue twister that you always wonder if it was actually called all 3 names!)
I suppose i'd just be a bit wary of using any other companies Carbon job until there was plenty of user reviews etc.
Maybe the big man @scottedington (no..i don't think this tagging stuff works either!!) just happens to be prowling to confirm?
In the meantime I probs needs me another pair of Brooks Hyperions...not THEIR carbon plate £200+ jobs, just the "mere" £70-80 jobs, as mine with 520miles, and massive holes feel like paper right now!
You're going segz mad Jools!
Always nice to grab or two, but I think I got over my seg days. They peaked with me once drawing a map of a park to try and take 5 on one lunchtime run sesh.
Think I only took 2, due to a mix of various clownery and bad luck.
One, I realised I hadn't "zoomed" in enough on the grid, so had stopped too early.
One I tied, so didn't get.
And one I didn't have the legs for, as it needed something like 3.50 pace for whatever short disto, and I foolishly attempted it last!!
Reminds me...I need to report the latest strava cyclist douche.
Took 8 seconds off a third of a mile rep I did - which would take a decent runner I think as I probably Rufus Brevitted it.
But no...some clown out for a 35mile at 5.37 pace. That must take some doing to cycle that slow? And I think that sort of massive long slow cycle for 3hours or so has to be on the borderline of the "exercise once a day" limit!
