Got caught in the rain on my walk today. It didn’t last long though, but I had made it home by the time it stopped. Seems like that’s a pattern when I go for a walk….

Training in Quarantine – Day 180
Installed more apps that were missing from my phone and set most of them up. Did my walk as normal, no issues there. Had to re-pair my phone with my car since everything was reset, though.
Training in Quarantine – Day 179
Late out today — my phone wanted to upgrade so I attempted it (it was an upgrade from Android 9 to Android 10), and it didn’t work, and I ended up having to factory reset and install from scratch. I did have some Titanium Backup backups, but they didn’t seem to work a lot of the time :/
So for the most part, I just reinstalled all the apps I remember using and logged in. For most, that was fine. But I lost the MFA codes on Google Authenticator, meaning I had to remove and setup:
all over again
AWS was quick and painless after a security check to confirm I was who I said I was and they called me on the number on the account.
WordPress was painless too — I was already logged in, so just removed MFA and set it up again, then logged in again. Similarly with LastPass
GitLab however, is proving to be more of a pain. They no longer accept MFA removal requests for people on the Free plan. So I wonder if they will accept me going to a subscription model so I _can_ then request the MFA removal. I think it is better anyway, since I’m hitting the 400 minute CI limit pretty regularly. The 2000 minute CI limit would be better. At least until I can get my own GitLab install working.
As for the run, yes, it was a run — well, more of a jog, anyway. Still did the 3km lap, doing it in 20 mins rather than the 30 mins it normally takes me when I walk it.
Training in Quarantine – Day 177/178
Forgot to log my walk yesterday. So doing both today.
Yesterday, I decided to look at a house up for sale on Zoopla, but couldn’t find it. The map marker was where a gated house was, but there was no estate agent sign. Maybe it’s been sold already?
But at least I got a nice walk out of it.
Today I did my normal lap around. Tesco have made progress on the forecourt of their petrol station, but I haven’t the foggiest what kind of work they’re doing.
Training in Quarantine – Day 176
Later walk than normal — the weather was colder and darker, but still made it around without any rain soaking me this time.
In other news, you may recall I spoke about a prospective new house I was looking at. Well, even though my offer was accepted, the seller decided to pull out of the deal before any contracts were exchanged. I’m bummed as heck over it, but not much I can do about it, I guess.
Training in Quarantine – Day 175
Went out for my walk and I got totally soaked, even though I ended up sprinting the lap.
Training in Quarantine – Day 174
Just made it back before it started pouring with rain.
Training in Quarantine – Day 173
Short walk because it was raining (and still is)
Training in Quarantine – Day 172
Grey and cloudy, but no rain while I was running — it was indeed pissing down with rain earlier, but thankfully, not while I was out on my walk.
Training in Quarantine – Day 171
No rain today, but still puddles on the floor. Went around with fleece jumper and coat. Was pretty warm by the time I came back.
