    I believe the delays this virus is causing for all us aspiring nods is the best thing that could’ve happened. Don’t get me wrong, my heart breaks when I see the damage it is doing across the world, but I believe the world will learn a positive lesson from this and we will come back stronger.

    To those of us in the nod pipeline, see this as a little lesson in mental fortitude and determination. If you’re flapping about having a few extra months in your own warm bed, training on your own time and living in relative comfort, I suspect that RT might not be what we want it to be.
    Let’s use this opportunity to turn ourselves into Studs!
    Closing the gyms was the best thing that could’ve happened. Let the creativity flourish:D

    This evenings sessions:
    50x 8-count bodybuilders with 10kg weight vest
    0.8mile sprint down to the local park
    4x max effort pull ups on the swing set
    4x 20 box jumps onto park bench
    0.8mile sprint back home
    50x 8-count bodybuilders with weight vest

    Ended with 20 minutes stretching and then cried a little.

    Just done a steady 6 mile jog down the beach = 55:35

    I’m actually disgusted by some people they are clearly rejecting boris’s advice like it’s a *text deleted* holiday walking in big groups etc.

    I’ve also volunteered for nhs because I’m not the sort off person to sit on my ass wait for it to blow over I *text deleted* help !

    Yesterday was a bit cheeky:

    20 Minute AMRAP:
    - 10 Bastards
    - 15 Sit Ups
    - 20 Press Ups
    - 25 Squats

    Then with a 20kg powerbag, 5x:
    - 20 Powerbag Lateral Pulls
    - 20 Sumo Squat into High Pull
    - 20 Bastard into Clean & Press
    - 20 Front Squats

    --------

    Today was 4 mile best effort run and stretching. Aim to keep under 06:50 mile pace. One of my least-favourite runs to do each week, well summarised by a bootneck mate when we spoke today: "4 miles is the worst distance. Too short to jog and too long to sprint, so just half an hour or so in the pain cave running at the hardest pace you can maintain. Gips."

    Got a band for the pull ups but no gym might have to try and find a nice tree haha I think is the only option have no pull-up bar at home
    Yesterday
    Pushups 6x6 during the day yesterday scattered about a month ago I couldn’t even do a solid push-up! Tis nice to see improvements all around the board!

    Cheers mate,
    That’s a big motivator for me, love seeing it if all goes well with the knee the running should getting better by the week! Have no college for a good few weeks so plenty of time to put the head down and run!

    Noisy, aren't they? :)
    I'll speculate that in the current circumstances lots of personnel have to be moved about in a timely manner to plan for contingencies.

    Alternatively it could just have been a training sortie. At my location (South Devon) there is considerable air activity every Thursday. The Royal Navy has long engaged in Thursday Wars off the coast.
