And what's so hard for you to understand that going out to do a 9-5 job is equally as selfish?? You don't want to admit this because you're not an athlete, but a normal 9-5 worker, that's being selfish and narrow minded. It's all okay for you to continue being a retail worker or whatever it is you do but it's not okay for me to continue my career.
So you'd prefer it if retail workers stopped working? How would you then get food/toiletries/paracetamol etc

You can't tell me why it's seen as okay to go out and work though but going out to run isn't okay?
Training isn't the same as earning i'm afraid. different priorities.

I judge the whiny little pricks for being whiny little pricks
Easy to say considering it's a situation you're NOT in yourself. Bravo! give the guy a blue peter badge.

Am I saying that though? The point I am trying to get across is that if people are ALLOWED to go to work then I should be ALLOWED to continue training.

How is it not? training and winning competitions helps with my mental health, if I wasn't doing that I probably wouldn't be alive. How is it not the same? You can have your opinion and tell me that my mental health isn't as important as earning a wage but it's just an opinion.

Right, your job is not yet an athlete, I actually know someone who is a professional athlete (in team GB) and they aren't moaning like you. They understand that it is necessary for this sort of stuff to happen in order to delay the spread of the virus and potentially save thousands of lives. They improvise and do what they can at home or away from people, it's not hard.

Just stop being so selfish and stop with the childish whining!
The difference is that they’re actually a professional athlete while you're a nobody and a wannabe. On the list of priorities, you’re the lowest. No one cares what you do except if it affects others. Stop whining and accept the situation.

Seems you're the stereotypical athlete meathead...

Hasn't remotely been the argument. You can go out for a run. Even during lockdown in other countries people have been allowed out (within reason, and within certain times). What you can't do is socialise. But judging by your attitude here, that won't be hard for you.

And time is on your side. We're not in lockdown. Prepare now. Get ready. It's not easy to workout at home, but it's definitely possible. So get ready.

I feel like an athlete so I am going to call myself an athlete. And that's him/her? But I bet they won't win any medals with how basic they sound, just taking situations. You'll have to give us an update on his/her not so gold medal.

And once again, do you go out to work? Guessing so, or are you one of the hypocrites that works from home and then feels he has the right to judge other people for not doing so as it isn't an option for them.
I went for a run one time, am I an athlete?

Well they're already a gold medal Olympiad so I think they should be fine and acheive far more than I guarantee you will...

And i do work from home as per the government advice that those who can should. People can also exercise from home...

What most of you don't understand is that being an athlete is my job, yes, all sporting events are currently cancelled but maintaining my fitness is part of this job. So what you're saying is that it's okay for people to go to what the public sees as normal form of work but because what I do is different to your average person, boxing, running etc I should put a full halt to it all because it's a different line of work? That's really narrow minded, going for a run once or twice a day has less of a chance of spreading the virus then working in a 9-5 job so I don't see myself as ridiculous at all. I also have bone problems not to mention and not keeping active could cripple me in the long run so yes, it's a priority.

Running on the spot, lifting flower bags and chairs, home work outs, minus shadow boxing isn't going to do much for me at all, in fact I wouldn't see the point in working out at such a basic level, I would literally have to run on the spot for like five hours just to make up for not doing proper running, not to mention its weird form would probably give me an injury from the get go.

I see me continuing training (which puts people at much less of a risk then your type of work) as important, perhaps look at it from that point of view? It's also solved most of my mental health problems too, without exercise, myself along with many other people could hit serious depression. It's much more selfish to continue working as I said, carries a much higher risk and yes before you moan and groan about how you have to survive, so do I with athletics, it isn't just a hobbie, it's my job, please respect that.
No one in human history has ever injured themselves from running on the spot. Also there's a brilliant invention that allow you to run whilst staying where you are. It's called a treadmill.

Please tell me one that's became a professional athlete within just over a year of doing sports? (with no previous background.) I'll be looking forward to hearing from you.

Meanwhile I'm riding out an undefeated streak in the ring, entering marathons, winning dash races and am pretty much unbeaten in whatever I do, all in just over a year. So yes you can chuck the you're not a professional athlete at me but reality is that I more than likely will be.

Look it won't be forever - once the weather warms up it should slow down the virus. We are trying to delay it so that we have more hospital beds (warmer weather = less broken hips in elderly and less winter flu)

We have been told that we should be in the recovery phase in 12 weeks. I work for the NHS on the frontline in London

They won't ( I don't think) ban people from exercising - complete lockdown has not worked in Italy after all. And if it does then the internet is your friend lifting heavy suitcases, bricks, chairs etc. We are protecting the vulnerable
The lockdown in Italy has only been 11 days so far, hardly enough time to see if it is working. It has thus far has not been "complete" at all - only recently are they bringing in the army to enforce it in Lombardy.

And although you are not saying anything absolutely false, you are implying it will be over in the summer; whereas the consensus seems to be that warmer weather, although slowing the virus, won't slow it enough to make lockdowns unnecessary.

Actually, Italy is thinking of banning people going for runs, maybe if you bothered to read my post carefully enough...

I mean that's probably a lie and you don't really know them but we'll go with it for the time being as one debate is enough for me today.

And yes, I thought you would work from home, once again advice coming from someone that isn't in the situation themselves.

Has a human in history ever ran on the spot for five hours before?

and hmm... yes, let me just get out my magical wand and summon up a wad of cash and purchase a treadmill, in fact why stop there why don't I open up my own gym, why didn't I think of that...

Thinking of =/= have done.

And, in case you've failed to notice, we're not in Italy.

As I've said about half a dozen times now, but you're too stubborn to read / care, it's time to prepare now. Get ready for it. It's hard to train indoors if you don't have the kit... So get whatever kit you can. If you don't, you've only got yourself to blame.

I will say that I have been told about people in Spain being fined for going for a run or going out on there bike.

Professional athletes go to nationals and international competitions. Going to events all year long and boasting about being ’undefeated’ when nobody knows who you are isn’t being a professional athlete.

Being more likely to be doesn't mean you are. You can stay indoors for a while unless you prefer to be at risk of getting the virus?

Once again, re-read my post. Nice of you to call me stubborn when you can't be bothered to read a post properly.
