Nobody starts this thread so I do, because the virus is also an issue for CityStrides as more and more people worldwide are asked to stay at home, and I read that there is at least one European country already (CZ) where it will be forbidden to run outdoors in less than 48 hours.
I would like to be responsible and avoid unnecessary proximity with other people whenever possible while hoping the complete quarantine won’t be decided in the coming days in my hometown.
Unfortunately, there are very few uncompleted streets that I can reach from my place without using public transportation. If I have to run from home, I will never be able to complete my city since the furthest nodes are around 30km away (18 miles) and I am not an ultra-runner able to run 60km (36 miles) in one day on a regular basis.
How does the coronavirus affect your running?
What are your strategies to remain effective?
I may look for a bike next week to ride to the places where I want to run, although I belong to the minority that does not like to ride a bike in town.
What can @JamesChevalier do to help in this “crisis situation”?
I see that some testers are very happy with the new challenges. It may be a temporary goal, and it will be a good thing for people who have already run their neighborhood, but I would personally prefer to use the coming weeks to go the hard completion way (100% of nodes, or as close as possible from 100%). I would like to see the missing nodes in the streets where I already reached 90% of the nodes. They are hidden at the moment, but there are probably some that are within reach without using a car or a bike, and if I can identify them, I would like to run there.
I think I will write down this idea next week and hope it will be popular since I read several times than I am not the only one willing to get as close as possible from 100% completion both in street and in node terms.
