What do you do instead of swimming then as exercise? Running? Or whatever takes your fancy?

I feel blessed to be near a river to exercise, can’t imagine for those who in flats etc. During lockdown.

My routine has changed dramatically
Before I used to only count PE lessons and Walks to schools exercise
Now I jog 2 miles every other day, do minimum 200 push ups a day, 100 sit ups minimum a day and try and do a plank each day 30 seconds longer than the day before, im currently at 6 mins

Same here, I’m enjoying the green spaces that come with village life.

I went from being really active and at the gym 5/6 times a week to nothing. Queue the weight gain and eating rubbish. I’ve now switched gyms and enjoying taking up CrossFit and loving it!

You are blessed
I live in the heart of a city ... in a flat. I've bwen seeking out any green areas, I used to before lockdown too so got frustrated when my usual quiet green spots were suddenly packed out. Had to go looking for others.

I have literally not exercised during lockdown, sorry. Before lockdown, exercise was a weekly thing.

we bought a treadmill off eBay and I've been doing 5 km a day on it because my mum has a heart condition so we have to be extra careful about going outside!

Oh, and does running up and down the stairs because i keep losing my phone charger count?

Thanks!
It's really good, it takes you right from the beginning all the way to running 30 minutes straight over a nine-week period. I've taken much more than seven weeks to get to where I am, but I am progressing along.
