Lockdown

May 28th 2020 Today it was sort of announced that the sort of lockdown as we know it is sort of over. Kind of. Apparently from Monday we can now go and visit up to 6 people at a time. I think that means that, socially at least, we’re on the other the lockdown, but I expect that I’ll still be working from home until September at least. And so, although September is still three months away, I’ve begun to see some light at the end of the tunnel. I haven’t been paying too much attention to the latest updates … Continue reading Lockdown

Itches

May 27th 2020 Today I know I should stop running because my legs are starting to hurt quite a lot, but I’m too far gone to break the streak. Today was 24 days in a row. I also think I’ve somehow developed hayfever at 26 years old. I woke up this morning and my right eye was swollen and itchy.

May 26th 2020 Today, a few things. First, my legs hurt so much that I’m not sure I can continue my streak of running 5k every day.

Second, I slept through a pretty important meeting today. That wasn’t great. It was at 8am and because it was a … Continue reading Few

Slope

May 25th 2020 Today it kind of feels like lockdown is lifted. Maybe it’s just because it’s a bank holiday, and also because it was 24 degrees out, but I was out for a run today and there were so many people around. I think people have just embraced/ignored the grey area in the government’s advice and are hitting the streets and parks. I wonder if that means that we’re on the downslope of the first peak, or the upslope of the second. I’ve not read the news in a couple months so I’m not actually sure how we’re progressing … Continue reading Slope
