A New Reality – Lockdown Wk2 – Days 6 & 7

Hurrah, another weekend at home adapting to our new normal.  On Saturday this meant that the Hubster whizzed around the house cleaning windows, dusting, clearing weeds from the garden, doing washing etc.  Since it's not something he does much of normally, I kept out of his way.
After three weeks of reduced exercise, and jumping on the scales to realise that I have gained 1/2 stone, I knew that I needed to pull my finger out and start recreating my daily exercise habit.
One problem though is that I am now sharing the turbo trainer with the Hubster. 

A New Reality – Lockdown Wk2 Day 4

Humans were designed to be social animals, and so for some of us this lockdown has forced us to consider how we communicate with each other.
For some of the introverts out there, a lockdown is quite good news. They no longer need to interact with people unless they want to. But for the rest of us, there is a very real risk of loneliness setting in. We thrive with human contact, and when we can't have adult conversations with people then it's hard.

A New Reality – Lockdown Wk2 Day 1

Today my good habits didn't start well, and I went to work in my PJ's.
I promised myself that I wouldn't do this. I promised myself I would get dressed and maintain some semblance of normality. Day 1 of the second week and I already seem to have lost my sense of pride in my appearance, and the ability to get dressed in the morning. Tuesday I have promised myself I will do better.
I wonder how many other people have also let their good intentions slide after just a week.

A New Reality – Lockdown Wk 1 Day 3

Since this is a cycling blog, after yesterday' distractions in watching how my local community were keeping themselves entertained during the lockdown, I am returning to the subject of exercise with a focus on cycling in particular....
The Government has decided that during this lockdown, they still want the country to be able to get some exercise outside - hurrah!. But, we are restricted in how we can do this.....
But what does this mean in practice?

A New Reality – Cycling amid a global pandemic

Everything's changed now!
In just 3 weeks, the way the world works has changed beyond recognition.
To be fair, we missed the first signs in Wuhan in China at the end of December 2019....
Ok, ok, so why the CV-19 history lesson?
Well, this now affects every part of our lives.  Almost every sporting event or leisure adventure around the world has been cancelled....
