So… I haven’t been getting my 6 hours/week of walking around the class plus 20-30 min/weekday of walking around the pretty landscaped area near my office. The first week I did a lot of string playing with Nice Kitty and walked around the back porch reading, but it’s not really the same.
We’ve been tossing the kids out for bikerides (with instructions not to stop at the playground), but currently only have 2 adult-sized bikes (we were waiting for DC1 to stop being in a growth spurt before getting hir a more permanent bike, and then we forgot about it because zie has been using mine) and I really hate biking in the streets (the norm in our neighborhood is that kids bike on the sidewalks, but adults bike in the streets).
DH says we should walk around the neighborhood but… there are a lot of people walking around the neighborhood which makes it harder to social distance than usual. Also it’s been raining a lot.
My sister, ever helpful, has been sending me links to things because she always thinks I should exercise/etc. more. Here’s a meditation app she recommends. Here’s more meditations. Free workout classes. 30 days of yoga with Adreine.
My students got to rent exercise equipment for free from the (now temporarily closed) Orange Theory they would usually go to work out in. It’s probably too late for us to buy a decent treadmill (or exercise bike etc.) and I’m not sure where we’d put one anyway.
After some discussion, DH and I have decided that we’re going to do something new each week of the quarantine to keep things interesting. But we’re trying to decide what. This week we’re doing the fitness ladder.
What are you doing to get exercise from home? Do you have any suggestions?
