Daily routine: Five things to do - 8 May

Struggling to find anything to occupy your time? Try Olympic Channel's top 5 things to keep you entertained during lockdown this Friday

It’s Fri-yay!

To help you #staystrong, #stayhealthy, and #stayactive going into the weekend, here’s our list of five things to-do on Friday.

1) Build your own obstacle course workout

It's not the first time we've suggested putting your creativity to use, and designing your own obstacle course using everyday home items within the confines of your safe space.

For a little fresh inspiration, have a look at what Russian figure skater Anna Shcherbakova's obstacle course workout looks like, and see how far you can challenge yourself.

2) Indulge in a weekend treat

Bake yourself a little something to enjoy over the weekend.

And this could be the perfect opportunity to try out a favourite of London 2012 Olympic heptathlon champion, Jessica Ennis-Hill, who shares the perfect chocolate brownie recipe

If this is indeed the three-time world champion’s go-to sweet treat, and she still managed to clinch silver at Rio 2016, then I'm all in for giving it a go.

And once you’re done, you can watch her golden Olympic moment from the London Games while munching on the brownie.

3) Get interviewed by your best friend (while still maintaining social distancing)

Have some fun and be interviewed.

Even better, get your best friend to interview you.

That's exactly what eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt did. See if you can keep a straight face, watching the Jamaican world champ try and not break into laughter when interviewed by his bff Nugent 'NJ' Walker.

And if that gets you feeling nostalgic, you can re-live all of his greatest moments at the Olympics by clicking on the video below.

4) Watch a football match

After months of being deprived of watching “the beautiful game”, football fans welcomed the opportunity to finally watch a live match with the start of South Korea’s K-League today.

The opening game of the country’s top league featured champions Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors and Suwon Samsung Bluewings, two of the country’s biggest clubs meeting in a game that was broadcast around the world.

The K-League becomes one of the first sports competitions to resume in the wake of the coronavirus health crisis, and you can watch the action on the K-League's YouTube or Twitter accounts.

And if that whets your appetite for Korean football, be sure to read all about 19-year-old sensation Lee Kang-in who is making a big impression on and off the pitch

5) Decide Who Scored the Best Olympic Goal

And while you’re in the mood for football, be sure to take part in our "FaceOff" competition on Instagram stories and vote on who scored the best goal of the Olympic Games.

Don’t let the colour of their jerseys blind your objectivity, have a watch of the goals and decide for yourself.
