COVID-19 means I have a lot of free time on my hands.
I work totally from home now and all my errands can be virtually done. I barely leave my house because of it. I need something to get me outside and to occupy my time. There are certain things that are just closed down and no reopening anytime soon. I can’t spend my days going to the movies, shopping or seeing concerts. Instead I need to find COVID friendly things. I recently figured out there is a fitness training center near me that is open for business. The rules are kind of weird. I need to wear a mask when entering the building, but not in the locker rooms. I have to wear a mask when I get off the fitness machine, but not on it. I have to clean every piece of fitness equipment I use, other than the yoga mats that I sit on. I feel like the gym is trying to be good about not spreading the virus, but doesn’t really know how to do it. I am thankful I at least have something to do. It is exciting to have something that gets me out of the house. Every morning, before work, I do an hour workout. I feel so much more energized and refreshed. The fitness center even offers fitness coaching if I wanted. I could get a personal trainer to work with me for the hour. Right now I am not nearly dedicated enough or in good enough shape to warrant individualized attention. If COVID hangs around longer, I might start looking into that option.
