Can you run or walk outside And stay healthy during an outbreak of Coronavirus? It is important to keep everything in perspective and your health as a top priority right now. But there are a few things you need to do when you go out for a walk to help you train and adhere to the best medical practice regarding COVID19.
Reminders for walking or running outdoors:
- Make sure you can run or go outside and be at least 6 feet away from others. (There are different “rules” or recommendations for this in different regions, so check this out in your region.)
- Your health and the health of those around you is a top priority. Do not expose yourself or others to becoming ill. This may mean interrupting a run or taking a short walk to avoid overloaded sidewalks or sections.
- Do not touch anything. This includes surfaces that both the coronavirus and your body may have. Do not touch your face, do not pick your nose, do not rub your eyes, bite your nails, [insert other gross habit here], etc…
Launch Hack to Avoid Touching Your Face
One of the ways I use it while running is to wear a neck. I saw that it is also called a bandana, a hat, a scarf, a leggings, a pipe mask and other names.
They can be worn for a variety of activities: from hiking to mountain biking, and now … run and wipe your nose.
I got one on the race track a long time ago and pulled it out to wear sometimes in the winter.
Well, I recently realized that I like the extra warmth of the neck (they are usually very thin and not very warm, but I am in southern California, so I don’t need a full fluffy scarf).
And when I run my nose, usually, too … that's why I usually keep a paper towel in a sports bra to wipe my nose.
Some time ago, I forgot to take a paper towel before I started to run, but I had a neck and I just used it to wipe my nose. (I know this is rude, but I share tips, so don't judge.)
Using leg warmers for the neck is a good option to wipe sweat, tears, mok, saliva, etc. Since it is on the neck, it is easy to grab and wipe while running. And most importantly, it helps you not to touch your face while running.
I ordered 6 packs of neck warmers from Amazon, like these. I wear it while running and then wash it before using it again.
Note: wash it after each use, as you will touch it with your hands. And do not wipe your face with the same parts that you grab your hand.
