My fives/sevens strategy is to go in goals for the first 20-30 minutes and then go outfield when everyone is tired, I usually rack up a decent number of goals as a result. Haven't so much as kicked a ball since March, the place I play has opened up so I'm hoping to get back to playing in a few weeks.

Gym's going well, I'd say I'm about 2/3rds of the way back to where I was prelockdown.

e: ^^^ Warnock Good recall. I was one of the better players in that particular group.

I'm ok tbh; not quite one of those absolute spazzes who sometimes turn up for 5s and nobody ever passes to them Warnock Putting myself down for comedic effect as per  Monty Oh Well I play 5s with guys who are a pretty decent standard (fairly young guys who play a lot), so I'm definitely below average outfield compared to them, but I'll get a couple of goals a game usually.  Eek

Played 5s with a bunch of lawyers a wee while ago and I was comfortably the best player. Greggy

Guidelines for training contact sports were changed today so that only professional athletes can train properly and it's just bag work for everyone else. Lampoon

As per the UK Muay Thai Federation, I am technically considered a professional athlete. Greggy

Got my dead lift back over 100kg for the first time since lockdown. Not the greatest weights achievement ever but satisfying for me none the less.

How are folks finding the social distancing and cleaning in their gym. My place has 6 cleaning stations and further hand sanitizer stations around the gym with two cleaners on full time. Feels pretty safe despite being in East Kilbride
