    60 minutes of exercise outside your property would have been my suggestion too.

    I also can see others logic.

    We all just interpret the guidelines differently.

    But as I have a daughter-in-law who is front line NHS in Halifax and 2 in-laws in their 80s perhaps my thoughts are for others and not just mi sen.

    My home patch Stagger. Are you fairly local to it?

    My favourite time is May when the rhododendron's near the lake are in full bloom.

    I wasn't aware that any time limit is even in the guidelines.

    There isn't a time limit and they are GUIDELINES not legal restrictions and that is why the police have stepped back from some of their initial positions.

    The way I see it is this, if I went out and run, I'd cover 5-7 miles and around 1,000 ft on a typical run on the hills here.
    If I walk it, I'm less at risk from a tumble, an ankle turn.... and it fits nicely with Mrs WP being off work atm that I can do half a day working from home and then a decent walk.

    We shouldn't start judging each others efforts.

    Today I took some routes I rarely use to get to Darwen Moor and back. Only passed about 3 people and all at more than 5 metres distance, apart from an elderly couple sat on a bench at the bottom of Donkey Brew who were still beyond the 2m.

    12.3 miles, 4:03 and 1900ft - cracking.

    You are all correct, there is no time restrictions within the guidance.

    Enjoy your time in the fresh air wherever it takes you.

    I would imagine that this weekend is going to be a nightmare, perhaps it would have been better to ban everything for the Bank holiday, unfortunately the sort of people who feel the need to ignore the restrictions are going to have a field day this weekend

    9.49 miles over Loughrigg again, 2,700 ft, 2 hours and 15 minutes - lovely day for it. Distance keeping easy, very few about, almost no cars. Hopefully over Easter it is much the same.

    Isn't the problem that if everyone went out for 2 - 3 hours every day then it would become crowded and maybe a more enforced lockdown imposed as I believe is the case in Spain. So we are ok providing the majority don't take advantage of the guidelines.
    Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run
