After eight weeks cooped up in your home, you probably left your house on Monday like a greyhound out of the blocks. Then again, maybe you haven’t mustered up the courage to dust off your running shoes. Or perhaps you didn’t run before the pandemic struck, and so have no idea why swarms of joggers flood the Paseo Marítimo at 8pm. Whichever is the case, now is the time to go for a run. Perhaps you don’t run because things that can be done at any time never get done at all. Well, all that’s changed. Coronavirus infections could spike again and tomorrow we could receive word from Pedro Sánchez that one of our basic human rights has again been revoked.
