    Me and my Family are using this time best as we can. Going for running together and doing other things together.

    Probably this is the time we should get more exercise to protect our self.

    We are looks like well prepared last two years of healthy eating and exercise.

    Scarcity of availability of food choices we can manage easily.

    In worst situation we have best tool fasting. Can manage couple of days with out food.

    Thanks.
    It was one of those cartoon like moments really, a proper wipe out, I even had time whilst in the air to wonder how long I would have to wait in A & E for an x-ray. Very gentle run today, but will up the pace a little tomorrow. I know from rugby injuries in the past that I will recover more quickly if I keep things moving (however much it may hurt). Unless bones are broken, immobility is not good.
    I do wish though that the gym would reopen so I can get back on the rowing machine and stop this running about, hey ho - it could be a lot worse.
    Thanks again, and yes I will take care.
