    Never seen so many people outside excercising

    I have never seen so many people outside exercising as I have seen the last week or two. Lots of families going for walks, jogging, riding their bicycles, around the neighborhood.

    We have been spending our extra time at the local baseball fields. It is just my two kids and me that practice. We do a lot of hitting and then I hit them flyballs, and groundballs.

    What are you guys doing with your extra time? Have you been noticing a lot more people outside exercising or walking? Who knows maybe we will all lose a little weight when this virus is over.

    Lots of people out hiking and biking. Fishing is a no go for boaters and the lake is completely closed to vehicles. But people are hiking all over and even going in restricted areas or areas that are closed. It's a a bit crazy. Wife and I have been bike riding. It's fun and good exercise.

    I agree on seeing many more people out walking when I walk our dog. I find it refreshing to see people outside and most of the time it is families walking together.

    Yes same way here. A lake I fish has a park around it and the parking lot was full despite it only being in the 40s on a Saturday morning. Normally it would be empty in those conditions. Going to be nuts once we finally get some good weather.

    I'm exercising in the bathroom getting one of the many tasks finished on the honey do list. Scraping of the old wallpaper. I'd rather be walking the golf course today. Oh well life is good.

    I'm still working full time so I don't have a lot of spare time on my hands, but yes I'm seeing people out everywhere running, walking, etc.

    This weekend I plan on working on the house a little bit and either playing some golf, or taking the wife to the lake and letting her have her first go around at trying to pick some off beds.
