Is the Freeletics app spoiling your workout?

In Freeletics by All This Running Around3 Comments

I recently got an iPhone 6. I didn’t want to get an iPhone 6. I let the contract run out on my last iPhone about three years ago, and never bothered renewing it. Those three years have been some of the happiest of my life. It’s bloody great, not having a phone. Because it means NOBODY CAN CALL YOU. You …

[quote]We can’t rebuild him. We don’t have the technology. Or the need, frankly. We can’t make him better than he was because despite it being 2015, cybernetics is still a largely underdeveloped field of science. And let’s be honest, look at the state of him.

Freeletics week 19 and I AM VERY SORRY

I owe you an apology, reader. Well, I don’t. I don’t owe you anything. I mean, this place is free. It might be appallingly written garbage that reads like the insane rantings of a man that has been chained to a radiator for fifteen years, BUT IT IS FREE. And you can’t argue with that.

The Freeletics Coach and my wife are taking the piss

In Freeletics by All This Running Around2 Comments

So, this was my triumphant return from injury. In my mind it was going to be like when Bob Champion came back from cancer to win the Grand National, but without a horse. (I mean me without a horse.
