On exercising I think its important to not do too much.  I ride a bike most days and I'm usually worn out afterwards.  I imagine that being worn out means that your immune system is weaker at that time.  I'm going to ride about 2/3rds of what I normally do so that I have something left in the tank to fight this bug.

My wife came home with a sore throat yesterday.  She's been holed up in the bedroom ever since.  No other symptoms and so far only one reported case for our county (Buncombe, North Carolina), so she probably doesn't have it.

Hiya mate.

You ride a bike most days and are worn out afterwards and now are going to cut the distance down by a 1/3rd.

What distance is your average bike ride?

Hi Paul, I often ride for about two hours.  Sometimes I ride on the road and sometimes mountain biking and cover about twice the distance on the road.  I live in the mountains and that effectively means slower average times depending on how much climbing I do.  So time is more of an indicator than distance but on the road I go maybe 25 miles and on the mountain bike about half that.  If I hike I reckon on about 1 mph because of the terrain.

Went for a run yesterday and a run this lunchtime.

Only did 4k loop by mine today but it felt so good to get out and get some fresh air. I think I am going to try and make an effort and get out once a day if I am still showing no symptoms and I'm not self-isolating. I feel re-focused for my afternoon's work.

My Dentist has it or at least has the symptoms and is self isolating for 14 days.   I had an appointment for this morning and it's been rescheduled for mid April.

Have a history of sore throats and my GP 30 years ago told me to heat a measure of Whiskey (35ml) in a glass in the microwave for 25 secs then add a teaspoon (rounded) of honey, a teaspoon (level) of lemon/lime juice with 8 cloves and heat again for 20 seconds and spoon sip it before bed with two paracetamol.

It works well to bust colds and flu's and helps with swollen glands and tonsillitis.


He was adamant about avoiding Lemsip.

Christ, that just....feels wrong. I can understand all the reasoning behind it, and that it is for people's own good, but viscerally it just doesn't compute. I just feel like going against it on principle.

I guess that's a consequence of living all your life in a liberal political and cultural context, where free thinking, self-determination and anti-authoritarianism are valorised and celebrated in art and culture.

Really hoping it doesn't come to that here

Feel sorry for everyone who has got this and I wish all a speedy and full recovery,  however, the amount of work shy  bare minimum wankets out there who are now sell isolating, because they coughed once in the last half an hour, feel warm and have phoned 111 who have said self isolate, though the poor get on the end of the line is going to say that anyway - is a fucking joke.

 I was in a taxi last week and the driver told me about a few passengers he’d had who said they were gonna use the self isolation as time off. The thing is, they’ll have the time off now, be back in work during the peak and may catch it anyway as they haven’t actually had it and won’t have any immunity.

On the flip side, someone came to work with a persistent cough last week and had everyone on tenterhooks, especially the guy who was recovering from cancer, which was pointed out and she didn’t come in the next day.

Hiya mate,  if riding your bike has got you worn out then I would suggest either slowing down or cutting the distances you cycle.  I wouldn't give a stuff about the times, in fact I wouldn't even bother using the Garmin (presuming you have one) and as for the KOM's, forget it unless you are a full kit wanker   ;D

As well as my 2 bikes I have a rather good exercise/spinning bike and jump on that a couple of times a day and I am seriously interested in purchasing myself a set of rollers (see the link) so I can ride my real bikes in the garrage if they decide to ban me going out and putting some miles in.

We don't even know if people have had it or not, that is the big issue and until they start testing, we'll never know.

Just been on a Webex, there are 3 in the office right now and 6 of us at home, as we are doing a day home/day office split. We are split into two teams, 5 in one team and 4 in ours.

However, out of that from the other team we have a Junior developer who had a temp last week so we had to send her home, I'm a first aider so I came close to her, but I feel fine. We've another who came back from Pakistan and is coughing, so he's gone into self isolation, their boss said he felt rough at the start of the webex but fine by the end.

Of us 4, we all feel fine, I've had my usual cough that I get every year, no temperature or anything, everyone else is great.

I see some conflicting stuff about going outdoors to exercise alone - either a run or a walk. Is this still safe/OK to do?

I see so many people on the frontline, especially NHS workers, posting about staying home and staying indoors. Is that just for people who are still going out and socialising and mingling unnecessarily, or should I be heeding that advice and doing some HIIT exercise or something indoors? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

if you keep your distance it’s fine, have seen some stuff with going to the gym and quite a few docs saying it’s ok as long as you wash your hands before and after, use sanitiser on the equipment before and after etc (and to be honest the supermarkets are far worse right now than most gyms off peak or going for a run as everyone is in everyone’s face touching everything)

The first person in Liverpool to be admitted to hospital on about 1st March hasn't fully recovered. They still have the odd bad day. That's as a hospital case though, others will have had a mild version which as others have said can't be confirmed because they haven't been tested.

Hi Paul. I never worry about times and things like that.  The point I was trying to make is that I think it would probably be better to reduce exercise a little bit because if you get worn out then your immune system is probably not at its strongest.  I'm basically just taking it a bit easier.

I'm lucky enough to live where there are a lot of mountain bike trails and good places to ride on the road.  There has been no mention of having to stay at home yet - an advantage of living in the country.

I used to have rollers but got bored with them and gave them away.  They're good for improving form but don't offer much of a training benefit because the resistance is too low.  I don't use a trainer either because I think they don't offer enough variation in position and therefore don't spread the load between muscle groups very well.

I'm sorry if this is a thread hijack.

On Thursday, the chief executive of British Cycling, Julie Harrington, wrote to the health secretary, Matt Hancock, urging ministers to add cycling to their list of recommended activities during the outbreak.

Earlier this week, a group of nearly 50 academics and experts on public health and transport wrote an open letter to the government, urging ministers to not discourage walking and cycling amid the pandemic, noting their vital importance in the wider public health issue of combating inactivity.

During any lockdown, “all of our existing social and health risks do not simply go away”, they wrote.

Absolute quality! I know Shearer gets a lot of stick for his punditry, but lets be honest he's a legend.

I'm curious to know if anyone knows anyone who has had it and fully recovered yet?
My wifes cousin was diagnosed with it and is just getting over it now.
He reckons he caught it at the Atletico away game.
He then went to our home game and started feeling unwell the day after.
He felt really rough for 4 days and phoned 111. They came out, tested him, and 36 hours later he was confirmed with the virus.
He felt rough for the next 3 days, but is now feeling well enough to start posting on Facebook again.
Once he realised he might have the virus he self isolated before he called 111.

Yes. My sister in law and her husband have had it.
They were tested on March 10th and they were informed on March 11th
They caught it in Italy where they were the week before.
He was quite unwell, with a high fever. He is very fit (runs marathons) and was unable to eat for a week.
She was not so bad, but still quite unwell with a fever.
They are both now much better and are eating but still weak.
Their  son lives nearby and was shopping for them.
They are both PhD chemists - so not daft - and isolated themselves as soon as they got back from Italy. The test was done in their regional drive through centre in the UK.
Sorry for the long post but I think it’s interesting information
They have been told they are safe to go out 7 days after they feel well
They will not be tested again
They were patients 9 and 10 in their region

Sounds like they were all quite lucky, above. In the sense that they didn’t need hospital care. Never had flu so can’t begin to imagine being wiped out like that.

What would people define as a persistent cough?

We've been thinking this a bit. Persistent cough and fever. But definitely not as bad as the flu (which I had in my twenties and can still remember!). So, a flu variant perhaps & some wishful thinking? The lack of transmission is what says it's not covid-19...
