Friday Finds – 27th March

Friday Finds is a regular feature in which I collate and share interesting articles and posts on running/health/fitness which I’ve read recently. Some might be inspiring, some might be scientific, some might provoke debate. All are things I’ve found in some way thought-provoking.

Well! Didn’t that all get very real, very quickly. I’m going to assume that right now you, like me and around a quarter of the world’s population, are in some kind of lockdown situation. I hope that you and your loved ones are all safe and well. If you’re running, please make sure you are abiding by the current regulations wherever you are in the world.

Clearly there really aren’t going to be many articles around right now that aren’t Covid-19 related, but for me I think it’s important to try and post as I work to create some kind of routine for myself in this strange, new world. For this week, a few more bits and pieces around the current situation, but I do have some other things saved that I didn’t quite manage to get into a post yet, so perhaps some future weeks will be about delving into the reasonably recent article archive!

First, we have plenty of outlets offering some sage advice and reassurance:

And of course there seems to be a growing trend for “at-home” endurance races. Impressive, but I’m just not sure I’d have the mental strength to complete that many laps of my garden/living room. Mind you, we’re still allowed out for a run so who knows how I might feel if that were to change!

As well as those looking to spread some joy:

But if all else fails, you could always try to set an astounding new world record 🤔

Stay safe. Be kind. Wash your hands.

  1. That Brittany story is so weird- I think I saw a headline the other day and just thought it must mean something else!
    I think having some sort of routine right now is very important, and it is good to remember we need to look after our mental health too.

  2. Yeah, I’m doing all of my running outside! No veranda running for me. That is just crazy.
    I did 15 miles today since it’s supposed to rain tomorrow.
    Twice, a State motor-cycle cop drove by at what seemed a slow speed. I was waiting for him to pull over and have talk with me!
    Stay healthy,
