I’ve seen from a few people that the governor of California has proposed a really bizarre and random list of outdoor exercise activities that people can now participate in.
I have so many questions? Like, what is “athletics”? And why clarify “singles” under horse riding? All of you doubles riders, you are SOL still! And some of these are still high-exposure. Tossing a baseball back and forth is like passing an infectious vector hot potato, and golfing requires a whole support system of peons to make it work, it’s not like it’s just you and your stupid golf clubs against the world, wandering alone on good pasture gone to waste. (Fuck golf, though, and I don’t care who this offends: it’s not a sport, it’s a shitty pastime AT BEST.)
ANYWAY, I don’t live in California, so I don’t have to devote too much brain power to actually figuring these things out.
Meanwhile, in Vermont:
Whomp whomp…considering the governor has already released the “Phased Restart Work Safe Guidance” for the next two weeks and riding isn’t on it, looks like we’re probably going to be into late May at the very best and quite possibly even June before riding is allowed.
Honestly, I could work from home for quite a while longer if I could just go to the barn again. (And the gym, holy shit, this whole “dessert after every meal, yes, breakfast too” is emotionally satisfying but not doing great things for my fitness.)
