Training in Quarantine – Day 33

Another walk in nice weather. Did the longer walk today. Queues outside the local fruit n veg. No queue outside Co-Op (though there was on the way back). Small queue outside Tesco Express petrol station, big queues outside Sainsbury’s no queue outside Tesco Express supermarket, and small queues outside the butchers and the fruit n veg stores nearby to there.

Did my shopping this morning. Missed my usual 5:30am queue up and ended at the Tesco at 6:15am and there were no queues. No idea why, there’s normally queues until past 6:30am at least.

And the shelves were pretty well stocked up. So perhaps the panic buyers have finally bankrupted themselves.

This will be the final weekend with my car since it will be being picked up Monday for recycling. So I made sure everything was emptied out of the car today. Out of curiosity, I turned on the ignition (but not the engine) and the electrics all came on and the radio was fine and still had its memory of my stations, and there were no warning alarms. Whether the car is driveable or not, we’ll find out when the salvage agent comes on Monday.

Training in Quarantine – Day 32

Day 32 in quarantine.

Insurance contacted me to say they’ve sent the engineer’s report to the other person’s insurance company to see if they will accept costs.

I’ve asked if I can see the report also.

Short walk, messed up a bit due to my FitBit not locking on at all until about 20% into the walk.

Today did my FitBit workout. Backs and Legs today, 31 mins.

Training in Quarantine – Day 31

Reached the end of the first month of quarantine. Lots of stuff done with my insurance claim, but that’s in another blog entry.

Did my 5k walk, which ended early due to a WhatsApp message.

Someone had just wrecked their car on the SAME traffic island that caused my car to be wrecked, and only SIX days after my accident.

Anyone want to bet they were distracted by my wrecked car?

Training in Quarantine – Day 30

4.70km walk (though my FitBit lost GPS for a while so the tracking was all over the place). No FitBit workout after the walk.

Insurance came back this morning and confirmed my car is a writeoff. The assessors called in the afternoon and valued my car at just over £3000. Considering it’s an 09 plate, that isn’t too bad, I think. Will discuss with family before giving the go ahead. The car next to mine is also written off, with value of £2200. Meaning a total of £5200 will be claimed from the third-party insurance, and that’s not including the damage from the other two cars, and the driver’s own car.

Training in Quarantine – Day 28

3k walk today, which took me about 30 mins, then I decided to take up FitBit’s offer to a 3 month trial of Premium, which included access to FitBit Coach (which I used previously). Picked up where I left off and resumed my “Get Lean” program. Today’s workout was also 30 mins long and definitely made me sweat. God, I’m so out of shape… :-(

In other news, I finally got called by my insurance company and have so far spent two hours on the phone with different companies — the insurance company, the accident claims management company partnering the insurance company and the assessors who are responsible to checking whether the car is repairable.

My dad’s car, which was also damaged has been declared a writeoff, even though it suffered less visible damage than my car. Mine hasn’t been declared written off yet, although I’ve sent all the videos and photos I have to the assessors. We shall see whether or not I need to get a new car….
