On one hand, I had my longest run for ages on Sunday, 11km. On the other hand, general meh. (A bike crash did not help.)

During the run - girl on pony, narrow path - Eep! I held a gate open, and we got by.

Like some others here, I'm fortunate to have access to areas where i could potentially spend hours without encountering too many people. I feel sorry for those in highly populated areas.

Got something to say?

Restrictions on movement

(2) For the purposes of paragraph (1), a reasonable excuse includes the need—

(a) to obtain basic necessities, including food and medical supplies for those in the same household (including any pets or animals in the household) or for vulnerable persons and supplies for the essential upkeep, maintenance and functioning of the household, or the household of a vulnerable person, or to obtain money, including from any business listed in Part 3 of Schedule 2;

(b) to take exercise either alone or with other members of their household;

The fact that the government accepts the importance of exercise places a responsibility on us to exercise in a way that reduces our risk of becoming a clinical case rather than increasing our risk.

Here is a review of the factors that influence the relationship between exercise and function of the immune system
