Please be aware of the latest guidelines from the government as of 23rd March, which state that during the new 3 week lockdown period, you are only allowed to leave the house for exercise once per day. Below are a few options for you. You can try a different one each day to see what you prefer and what works for you. Outdoor activity is still as important as ever and it's important to keep up with what little we have to work with during this time.
Couch To 5k
For those who want to start running as a way of getting out the house, but are new to it, Couch to 5K is an amazing app you can download on your phone that will ease you into a routine of running over the course of 9 weeks.
Cycling is another great way to get active outside at this time. You can do it alone or in a group at a safe distance from one another. Cycle Somerset have lots of cycle routes along quiet country lanes on their website.
Walking is one of the easiest ways to get out and get active that most people can do. It's a great way to get out the house and experience the outdoors and with the Explore Somerset Map Roamer, you can discover routes local to you.
Gardening - While it may not be thought of as a traditional way of keeping active, getting out in your own back garden and doing some work can be an easy and simple way to get some fresh air and get moving. Doing something out in your own garden is also a great way of tacking mental health problems such as depression, stress and anxiety.
Playing With Pets
Playing With Your Pets - Pets are another fantastic way to help you to stay active, especially with dogs. Whether it's taking them for more regular walks, or just having fun with them in the garden, it's almost impossible to be inactive with a dog around. Stewart, one of our We Are Undefeatable Somerset ambassadors, also talks about this in his video, which you can find here.
