With the #coronavirus stay-at-home order, my family can't get out to the gym. So my teenage sons and I broke out the old weight bench. Not quite the same, but not bad 😀
I'm lucky, in that I can work from home. I feel sorry for those who cannot go to their jobs, yet cannot work remotely. It has to be frustrating. I hope the government comes through to help those who are being kept from work.
