I knew the day would come when the YMCA would have to close in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. So swimming is out for a while. I’m going back to power walking. Today I walked 2 miles over my hilly course in 31:55. It is the loop outside my house.

I had been wanting to see if the walking would improve or aggravate my arthritic hip. I would say it helped today.

I went shopping today, for food. It took two stores but I found what I wanted and needed. BJ’s was picked over fairly completely. Food Lion had what BJ’s lacked.

Self-quarantine. One of my neighbours is receiving chemotherapy. Reducing risk for her is what this is all about.

I’m going up in a bit.
