Five Ways to Stay Active During Your COVIDcation; Fitness is the Key to Winning the Battle Against Future Viruses!

Who has a better chance of survival in the current pandemic climate; a person physically fit person who’s immune system is in the background doing push-ups, or a person who’s gut is taking a lap around the lazy river?

It’s not even a contest.

During the first few weeks of the COVIDcation lock down, I came across more walkers and bicycle riders than I did cars while I was out for my daily ride.  It was the first time that’s ever happened in the 27 years I’ve been into outdoor fitness (of one stripe or another).  It was wonderful to see, though on-foot traffic has slowed considerably of late.

Now is not the time to sit on the couch, though.  It’s time to stay active and I thought I might be able to help.  I’m going to get right into my list of five things you can do to stay active to help insure you’re as able as possible to weather virus storms such as this one.  After all, I’m sure most would prefer to be one of the asymptomatic majority over the alternative!

  1.  Ride a road bike!
  2. Ride a gravel bike!
