    Anyone Pursuing Fitness During the Lockdown?

    I only work a couple of days a week, and my wife is fully retired. We have a lot of time on our hands with everything closed, so we are getting in better shape. Walking several miles a day, playing with dumb bells, and today spent 30 minutes on Pilates (ouch.) Anyone else? What are you doing?

    I just lifted my glass of rum and coke to my lips...........twice.
    Should be about 6 more times and I'll have to get a refill.
    I have the strongest left arm in the block. Or maybe this room.
    At my age I consider putting my socks on as exercise.

    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.
    ....................Kurt Vonnegut, in "Mother Night"

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

    The gym my wife goes to just closed yesterday for a month. To misquote My Cousin Vinny, apparently the whole gym has the flu!

    I'm still doing what little fitness I normally do, but as Doc said above, I'm pretty tuckered out after work. There's not much going on here other than reading (and watching TA.net).

    Pushups in the AM and latter in the day or evening I do curls, military press, squats and toe lifts with 70 pounds of barbell weights about every other day but not on Sunday. It only takes about 20 minutes.

    I go walking at the mall. Yes it's still open and actually safer now with the new rules. The only reason the mall is technically open is it is allowed to stay open if there are businesses that have outside entrances. All the inside entrances to stores are closed, so those smaller businesses are also closed. This means that almost no one is actually inside the central area of the mall, even though they are allowed in. The stores were the kids go to hang out are the smaller indoor ones and they're closed. Last night I was the only person on the inside walking. The night before there was one other person walking, and about 200 yards away at least. I never touch any surfaces while at the mall. It's a thousand times safer to walk at the mall than Walmart, for example. Still, I try to walk outside when weather permits, mainly because it's less boring and I don't have to drive anywhere.

    The mall option sounds great. I overdid it a bit yesterday, so I'm taking it easy today. Tomorrow I work at the gun store, so I'll be walking all day. I'm told business is up 700 percent or so. I doubt there's much ammo left.

    My idea of exercise today will be cutting and installing ceiling joists and rafters on an addition I'm building. A couple of years ago I could barely walk with a cane due to nerve damage in my legs so ladders are not my friends. Going up and down the ladder carrying 2 X 8s is where I'll get my workout.
