Elisha Nochomovitz spend a grand total of six hours and 48 minutes running 26.2 miles around the 7m balcony of his apartment in Toulouse, France.

The video, which was shared online, shows the 32-year-old running up and down the balcony where he completed around 6,000 laps.

In an interview with HuffPost France, the restaurant worker said: "I wanted to bring something playful to the containment. I saw pictures of people going out of their homes for jogging.

"But if everyone does the same, we will all end up outside. Part of my goal was to kill as much time as possible."

:military_medal:FINISHER MARATHON DE MON BALCON:military_medal: . :small_orange_diamond:️Je viens courir pendant près de 7heures sur mon balcon de 7 mètres de long et 1metre de large. (Vous avez été nombreux à calculer,à peu près 6000 A/R) J'avais la possibilité de sortir pour courir autour de la maison,mais si tout le monde pense pareil on aurait été nombreux dehors... Mon travail a été reconnu d'inutilité public,donc le meilleur moyen de ne pas se laisser abattre c'est de faire du sport. :small_orange_diamond:️La consigne était de rester à la maison,c'est ce que j'ai fait. Juste pour vous montrer qu'on a pas d'excuses,et s'il vous plaît penser à toutes ces aides soignants qui sont en première ligne face à ce virus :pray::pray::heart: J'écris à chaud après avoir tourner pendant 7h sur mon balcon...tout se mélange dans ma tête et j'ai envie de vomir hahaha... Mais merci à tous et toutes pour vos messages/soutien tout le long de la journée. Vous m'avez bien aider à tenir. J'ai bossé mon mental aujourdhui. Je ne me pensais plus capable de courir 42bornes mais #marathonman est toujours présent :zap: LA BISE #marathonman #runhappy #runhappyteam #runtoexplore #runtoinspire #runstoppable #motivationoftheday #nopainnogain #runningmotivation #runnerlife #igrunners #runnersofinstagram #picoftheday #marathonfinisher #fuckcovid19 #npng #trainhard #workhard #athlete #motivation #brooksrunhappyteam

With France on a 15-day lockdown - and talks of potentially extending it - Nochomovitz is now wondering what he can do next, adding: "How about another marathon to improve my record. Or a 12-hour home trainer session, on my balcony?"
