Great article.

<<You don't HAVE TO train. You don't HAVE TO be your strongest. You don't HAVE TO learn something new. Don't feel pressured to "use this time well".>>

I’m embracing this advice wholeheartedly. This might change over time, might have to buy a fingerboard eventually!

Being off work till Easter, I’ve got nothing to do and so am doing nothing, other than posting on here, following the news and going for short walks in the flatlands of Suffolk. Might even read a book.

Feel sorry for the self employed in the outdoor industry and elsewhere, who have a lot more to worry about than not being able to go climbing. Hopefully they will get some support soon.
