Due to the COVID lockdown – or maybe my own laziness? – I haven’t exercised all that much over the last few days. Mosty days I’ll walk at least a few kilometres. I’ll head out, mostly in the afternoon, and take a walk around the city. But for most days, this week, my tracker tells me I’ve managed on average less than one kilometre most days. Mostly, that’s been a walk to and from the coffee shop in South Lismore, the Duck Pond Espresso.
Inspired today by the tweet of a colleague who lives in Melbourne, recording that he had been out for a run of close to ten kilometres, I headed out this afternoon to walk off some of those creamy apple turnovers I’ve been enjoying from the local bakery.
As I walked around, I noticed there were people in cars, though nowhere near as many as you might see on the road around Lismore, even on a Sunday.
A family member who was out and about tells me there was only a handful of cars in the Woolworths carpark, but that the Bunnings carpark was close to full. Yeah, like a trip to Bunnings is essentail, but the supermarket isn’t?
On foot, I passed two or three people running (and panting heavily, so I secured my mask that little bit tigher), and there were probably less than a dozen people I passed in total.
Along the way, I thought it might be fun to stop from time to time to record some short videos of places of interest, and here they are.
It’s quite good fun recording these little videos, so I’ll probably record some more.
It’s not exactly “Getaway”, but maybe you’ll still enjoy these videos as a very low-fi insight into my hometown?
