Macca think the point is more the difference between going for a run with somebody (exercise) versus a takeaway coffee and natter on a park bench (social)

My only day I run with anybody else usually consists of a run then a takeaway coffee while we walk and talk so still get exercise and a catch up (Scotland) and see no harm in it.

Two people from two different households "can meet outdoors for sport, exercise or social interaction" (ScotGov)

Yip and that’s why we do it - while we still can :-)

I think that’s a very reasonable approach to take and wish that England had similar.

Though maybe that’s partly my personal bias as it’s all the social contact my mother has.

I broke the rules today - something which hadn't even occurred to me until I looked at this thread. Early on my run today I ran past a couple of people - just as I passed I had a "ping" and realised they were two friends I hadn't seen throughout this whole thing. So I stopped, and we blethered for (Garmin tells me) around forty minutes. But there were two of them :-o . So really, I should just have said hi and carried on, or advised them that I could only speak to one at a time. (At all times, we were 1.5-2m apart, on a breezy day.)

Whilst chatting, F told me something related to the current increases. He's in the oil business: cooking oil that is, draining and cleaning commercial fryers. Including at the local University. He was informed by staff there that FSS it was party central in the residences: music, lights and large groups. The cheap pizzas they had proved very popular for these, but in the end they would only deliver out to the residences, to stop all the students who were completely disregarding distancing rules from coming in.

Oh, and on the run several people were squeezing out of my way (I in return gave them a wide berth) in a way that I haven't really seen since the early days of it all.

Got something to say?
