With the COVID19 scare going on my local gym has been shut down. This is very frustrating to me as I have been going religiously every other day for a few months now to try and regain some of my vigor. It was working. I was starting to lose weight, my muscles were toned up again, and I had more energy. But a public health concern is obviously a lot more important than my personal fitness goals, so I'm making due. I've been going on 7 mile walks every other day and lifting dumbbells at home to try and maintain myself. However it's still quite snowy and icy where I live, so my sticks have been getting a real workout. In fact they have saved me from falling a few times this week alone and I've managed to wear the grippy nubs off of the ferrules on two of my shillelaghs. Even if they hadn't saved me, I find them a nice fiddling item to distract my mind when I hit the second half of my walk and I start getting tired of it. In a light hearted pondering yesterday, I was just wondering if the virus scare has folks out walking more, and if so, what sticks are getting some use? Post a pic if you like. What's your favorite?
