Set myself a target of LeJoG within a set period - which might require a bit more than an hour a day on the road - and would set the Twtd exercise Stazi off on one....

So you will have to wait til lockdown is over for details :-)

I've been out every day for the last 17 days doing rides...longest so far being 25 miles as don't want to take p*ss on my daily exercise allowance. This is really cool though and something the wife might like as she's working from home and has been struggling with motivation to use her exercise bike...she was even looking at Pelaton the other day. Will be sending her a link to this now. Cheers Newcy

Not for me. Realising how much my mile walk to the station and back plus mile walk from kings x and back every weekday keeps a level of fitness going. Managing to do a couple of shortened runs a week which I did before anyway, but then have got the dog to walk as well. Four in the house which helps with that thankfully.

I’m tempted to do one to be honest.

I am getting more stuff for a home gym type thing. I’ve ordered a wall mounted pull up bar and a couple of other things. We have an exercise bike and I have a mountain bike that I have done a few rides on too.

I dint have that app but I recently bought a Reebok Treadmill which connects to an app that allows you to run with google earth on a screen.

So I can be running through the streets of Rome, London or Paris in real time. It also adjusts the incline on the treadmill in relation to the terrain you are running, so if there is a steep hill then the incline goes up drastically.

Yesterday did a retro run where I ran from my grandad’s old house to Portman Road. Out a smile on my face when I could first see the ground in the distance. The only let down was the route wants filmed on a match day so Portman’s Walk and Sir Alf Ramsey Way were deserted.

The Great East Run was outstanding. I enjoyed it so much more than I did any of the Great North Runs that I had done. It was also my quickest.

That’s one fancy treadmill Glassers!

I've just got Strava on my phone.
Now I am a few months post-op I can do a bit more.
There is a juicy hill nearby which I can struggle up and down until boredom hits.

Have been more active than in a long time. I love it.

I’ll send you a picture mate. Putting in a home gym has been my lockdown project.

I'm seriously considering a triathlon for next year...

There are some easy triathlons of 200m swim, 10k bike, 2.5k run.

My wife has the exercise bike and I have small dumbells...really not prepared for home workouts but I work in a hospital so am still working day to day and then just utilising my evening to get out on the mountain bike and try and clear the lungs and head.

The price of Pelaton was mad and I said we'd just find a new exercise bike as hers is old but I guess everyone has been out to purchase one as none available for like a month!?!

I've been wondering what difference exercise makes to spreading water droplets and possible virus spread. Interesting little read.

Take home message - keep extra distance if out exercising.

It really depends on what location you chose. The major cities have been filmed really well which makes it quite seamless.

Ipswich isn't so good as some of the filming has been done on different days. Rome, London and Paris are stunning.

Apparently you can Bluetooth the image to a big screen which sounds pretty good but I just stream it to my ipad.

This is me starting from Sir Al Ramsey Way earlier.

It should be ‘singing the blues’ really. But I always run to Starpoint radio.

Do it. Greatest thing in the world.

I'm meant to be doing Ironman in July but think it will be cancelled. That is 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile cycle and then a marathon to finish it off. Would like to go sub 12 hours.

I've done two half Ironmans but have really be upping the training to get me use to the punishment.

In terms of the OP I do the odd virtual race on Zwift. Amazing platform and community but it is unbelievably competitive.

I know that was then, but it could be again..
