Training in Quarantine – Day 50

Finally hit day 50 of quarantined exercising. A colder, but less windy day. Big lap today, but decided to try cutting some of the longer corners to see how much of a difference that made.

My hair is really starting to grow out and is beginning to really irritate my ears.

And I found out my second backup domain I play development with no longer had its email forwarders working, and when I logged in, my account seemed to be pretty borked. A back and forth with support emerged that my hosting provider got acquired (again) and looks like my data was not transferred properly, or was empty when it was transferred. More likely someone f**ked up during the migration.

They recreated my account but it’s still pretty flaky. I’m asking whether I’ll get a credit for the 6 months of failed hosting (the acquisition took place at the end of last year), and I’m seriously considering transferring the domain off this hosting provider and onto Google Domains, but I would lose my email forwarding. I think I’ll look at buying another dummy domain on Google Domains and test with that for a bit.

Training in Quarantine – Day 46 — VE Day

A free Friday because I’m now on 4 day week, and it’s VE Day, so my one-hour walk came across several roads with bunting and lots of Union Jacks. It certainly was suitable weather for it…

Lots of people were queuing and saw the longest queue outside Tesco Supermarket (and not Sainsbury’s surprisingly)

After the one-hour walk, I then did my Fitbit workout, which was just shy of 35 minutes and I certainly felt it afterwards….

Training in Quarantine – Day 45

Dropped an email to the insurance brokers to ask when I would expect to see the final cheque for my car and they advised end of this week, early next. And I then asked about the hire car and they advised I am entitled to the car for another 7 days after the receipt of the final cheque.

Problem is, I can’t get another car right now due to the lockdown, but I did check on Car Wow and Auto Trader. Car Wow seems much easier to use. And I have already got an offer from a Toyota dealer in Woodford Green, about 1.5 hours bus journey away (three buses) and only about 10 miles.

Doing early shopping tomorrow, so only did my 1hr walk today, and no FitBit workout, but should be able to finish this week’s set if I work out Friday/Saturday/Sunday

A nice hot day, no queues except outside Sainsbury’s, and a few at Co-op on the way back.

Training in Quarantine – Day 43

Did the long walk again today, only a few queues today, outside Tesco Petrol station, Sainsbury’s and Tesco Supermarket.

Forgot to bring my earbuds so it was a silent walk around the 5k lap, but surprisingly relaxing. No music meant I was left to my thoughts. Of course, it did also mean I was bugged by some beggars on my way around — they always seem to congregate around Sainsbury’s for some reason….

Training in Quarantine – Day 41

Grey skies, but no rain, 45 minute walk, 4.76 km, and no queues at most of the shops. A few people waiting outside the butchers and the Co-op, but nowhere else.

Beginning to think most of the panic buyers have bankrupted themselves, or are desperately trying to shift their hoard, like the guy mentioned on Sky News Australia
