CORONABOBS ISOLATION DAY 6 – Diary of a Self-Isolator
Diary of a Self-Isolator – Day 6 Saturday 20th March 2020
I started the day by investing a great deal of money in the Daily Telegraph of the day a whole £2.80. I can buy a book for that on Amazon. Infact I can buy a book for 1p and the postage is £2.80.
Surprisingly enough, the appeal was not the half page photograph of Boris on the front cover but the “Saturday” supplement inside. This boasted a three page article entitled “How to stay fit when you’re isolating”. Exactly what all us over 70 year olds need especially me and Mamma.
I excitedly paid over my money. Got it home. Changed into my gym kit…and came to a standstill.
This is what I found:
I have to say if I attempted most of these exercises as with most other self-isolators who you would expect to be over 70, we’d be using up NHS resources to the full in ringing 111, requiring paramedics, taing up A&E resources, filling fracture clinics and taking up unnecessary beds.
They all scare me as I anticipate the danger. I would need to ring 111 before attempting this because it has to end in disaster.
For a start my knees are not strong enough for me to climb on to a chair, let alone balance with one foot off and one only half on. I would slip, because my knees could not support me and with my weight the chair with tip over. i would fall to the ground breaking my hip.The bottles would come crashing down on my head and knock me out, smashing as they did so. Then shards of glass with embed into my head and a large pointy piece of one of the bottles gash my throat, just missing my jugular if I was lucky.
What a waste of £2.80. So, I spent the dayworking on bringing my Blog up to date. Better to be unfit
