Freeletics: the return. Also, running again!

In Arbitrary Guff, Barefoot running, Freeletics, Injury problems by All This Running Around1 Comment

Well, good day to you all. Mondays, eh? What a load of fucking shit. Well up yours, because actually I quite like Mondays. But then, I work from home and there is literally nothing to stop me from sitting on my stupid fat arse watching Kojack, followed by Magnum PI, followed by The Professionals. Living the dream. Anyway, I’m sure …

Freeletics 15 week coach – week 6

In Arbitrary Guff, Bollocks, Freeletics by All This Running Around3 Comments

Week 6 already. Where does the time go? Nowhere, idiot. Time is a relative construct that cannot truly be separated from space. What are you, thick or something? But anyway, the point I’m making is that it seems like hardly any time since I first heard of Freeletics, and here I am already approaching the halfway point of my 15 …

Freeletics 15 week coach – week 4

In Arbitrary Guff, Bollocks, Freeletics, Music by All This Running Around1 Comment

Week 4! My goodness me. How time literally flies, like an aeroplane or a bluebottle. Obviously I am writing this many years in the future, but will be doing my usual trick of fiddling the date information so that it looks like I’m a proper writer capable of writing things to a schedule. I don’t know what my problem is, …

Oh dear, I’m already getting behind with these updates aren’t I? I’m absolutely SHIT when it comes to writing things regularly. Well, whatever. I’m going to lie by publishing it retrospectively, which will make it look like I was really on top of things. Nothing could be further from the truth, as I’m actually writing this half way through week …

Freeletics – the end of the beginning

So, that’s it then. Or rather, it isn’t. Yesterday I completed the initial free period of Freeletics workouts. In just three weeks, I have gained a perfect physique. I am essentially Bruce Lee, only taller and less dead. Piece of piss. LIES. But I have at least managed to make it to the end of the free period of Freeletics …

Freeletics – here comes the pain!

In Arbitrary Guff, Bollocks, Freeletics by All This Running Around7 Comments

I lost my mojo. My running mojo. I don’t when I lost it, or where. It happened quite quickly, and I for the first time in over two years, I have found myself struggling to get enthusiastic about running. Crucially, I didn’t stop. I haven’t been running as frequently, and I’m probably down to about three times a week now. …

Arbitrary Guff: running in London & the collapse of society

In Arbitrary Guff by All This Running Around1 Comment

I was in London this weekend. I like London a lot, always have. When I was a boy, the majority of my paternal grandmother’s family lived in the capital, and we’d travel up regularly from where we lived in Kent. Those visits became a lot less frequent when we moved up to Warwickshire, a life changing event that every single …
