Even as the world tentatively reopens, the new normal looks very different from the old one. We’ll be adjusting to exercising in new settings, with different equipment, and in some cases in smaller (or even virtual) groups. We’ll look at the what science tells us about what types of exercise might work best under these new constraints, how much we need to stay physically and mentally fit, how isolation and stress impact your workout, and what marathons and other mass-participation events might look like in the months to come.

Alex Hutchinson is a runner and science journalist who writes about endurance and health. He writes the Globe and Mail’s Jockology column, and also contributes to Canadian Running and Outside magazines. His latest book is the New York Times bestseller Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance.
