    Hackney Half postponed, of course. Sigh.

    Maybe I'm stupid but I don't see how insertion of a naked black guy with a big dick into an image makes it a meme in the first place...

    Oh I was referring to the comment above mine about Prince. Missed what you are talking about. Still though, same applies, just don't read this thread in work or in front of kids, is my advice.

    Anyone who is reading this thread in work or with their kids watching should expect the worst.

    Ah of course, a dictatorship. So much easier to control the citizens when required for a medical emergency.

    They’ve been told to expect upwards of a quarter of a million fatalities, and 10 times that in medical care.

    Hold on. Who has told them this and on what basis?

    Not disputing what you're saying, I'd just like to know the source.

    If that is the future scenario, why are we not seeing deaths in China? Are they really so much better at social distancing?

    Did it floor you? Were you unable to leave bed?

    For a couple of days at its peak I did not eat anything and tried to sleep most of the day. Took lots of paracet and also some gravols (dimenhydrinate) to knock me out. I have a jar of them from Canada, over the counter there, non existent here. They work as sleeping tablets for me.

    Appetite still affected.

    I thought I was over it (started nine days ago) but today was not great. Had to lie down at 6:30pm. Was considering checking in to local A+E, but feel better now after a two hour sleep, and also didn't feel it was warranted compared to other reported conditions. Cough still persistent. Older kid also still coughing, listless and floppy at random times, and he also went to bed this evening at 6:30 which is unheard of.

    The cough also feels different to others in the past.

    FWIW I am 43, generally healthy, don't smoke, have been vegan for 16 years, run 3 times a week, and don't drink much alcohol any more. Very rarely off work with illness. My work is closed and WFH at the moment, but there's no way I could put in anywhere near a full day at the moment. Being sick for this amount of time with me is completely outside the pale.

    So it looks like I am over the worst of it now. I was most likely exposed at work (three confirmed cases as of yesterday) or during a visit to the urgent care centre at Guy's early last week. Will be off work for 14 days.

    I can't say for certain if it was the virus, but it was certainly like nothing I have had before in the past. My joints and muscles felt like they were on fire up until the weekend. I have a minor cough but no breathing problems.

    My older son had a fever on Sunday but now seems to be alright.

    I think the cabin fever will be the thing that will cause the most damage. In that, we are most likely to have to get outside and inadvertantly breach any social distancing guidelines.

    What do people think are the chances of the hackney half being cancelled?

    Temple of Camden has moved to Parkway, a rather better location than Camley Street

    Damn it, I wanted to get photos of those murals they had in the interior of that location

    Also 1:30, well done. I can only dream of that.
