Andrew wrote a set of guidelines for exercising during lockdown. You can find them here: TheRules
He missed out some important rules.
- DON’T PUT YOUR RUN/BIKE ON STRAVA!!!
If you are lucky enough to be able to exercise freely outside then don’t show off about it. Have some respect for people who can’t. Keep you epic run or your 100 mile bike ride to yourself.
People are stuck at homes and can’t get out so don’t make their day worse by seeing how great your day was.
2. DON’T DO A MARATHON IN YOUR GARDEN
Why do that? The original marathon was a point to point run from point A to point B. You’ve gone from A, stayed in A and finished at A.
Why bother? Sit and have a beer instead. No-one cares you’ve gone around in circles more often than a wind mill.
3. DON’T DO ZWIFT RACES
Its not real! You’re all at home sweating on the carpet. The people you are racing are probably cheating just as much as you are. If you use Zwift then listen to a podcast or YouTube at the same time and forget about races. At least you’ll learn something whilst you are getting fit.
4. CHECK OUT STRAVA WANKERS
We’ve all made the mistakes this account highlights. So to paraphrase Andrews “Don’t be a dick” rule, my last rule is
5. DONT BE A WANKER (especially a Strava one)
