So there I was, out on my drive, fitting some mats into the car when my phone made an odd noise. I whipped it out (oh err missus!) and noticed an alert from the NHS track and Trace (T&T) app.
It informed me that I had been in contact with someone who had tested positive for Covid and that I needed to self isolate for five days.
That is …
- No leaving the house even for work
- No exercising outdoor except in the garden
- No visitors
So, no long weekend walk this week and only having a small garden I’ll have worn a trench after walking the planned twenty two miles. In fact, I can’t even walk the puppies !
I have, planned …
- 2 miles today
- 22 miles Saturday
- 8 Sunday and
- 2 miles on Monday
I think that I’ll have to dust off the treadmill but the thought of twenty two miles fills me with dread. I’ll have to break the twenty two down into a number of shorter walks with breaks in between.
Luckily, I can log the treadmill mileage towards Route 66 and of course the #walk1000 miles challenges – I’ve just got to remember how to work Zwift !
