With most of us now spending a lot more time at home than usual, it is the perfect time to start running. That time you used to spend commuting in the morning or evening could now be time dedicated to getting out for a run. It will break up your day and help with both your physical and mental health during this uncertain period.
Some of you may have some concerns about being outside during this period but according to government advice as of 20th March, it is okay to go out and exercise as long as you keep within social distancing guidelines;
Run alone (unless you live with family or a partner who is healthy and wants to join you).
Avoid heavily populated areas, 2 metres is the recommended distance to keep between you and others.
Wash your hands before and after.
Don't run if you are feeling unwell. If you have any symptoms, it's best to wait until you are feeling better.
