Man runs marathon on 7-metre balcony during coronavirus lockdown in France

In the age of Covid-19 confinement, Elisha Nochomovitz has figured out a way to keep occupied by running a marathon on his balcony. Nochomovitz ran 42.2km (26.2 miles) back and forth, never leaving his seven-metre-long (23 feet) balcony. Nochomovitz wanted to pay tribute to medics and show it’s possible to stay fit at home

    I suspect that he will regret it. I have been walking six miles a day in my driveway and I have found that I need to be careful with my frequent turns since they put additional stress on my knees and hips.

    silly news, don't understand why it is worth the time to report it, and thanks for flaunting that he can put a treadmill in his home

    What dedication, but six hours and 48 minute is a pretty bad time…. running back and forth in a hallway… just take your days off. No ones running a marathon anytime soon…

    Cleaning the house is not physical exercise? wash, clean fix things in the house. It's enough.
