[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. Anyone fancy a pint?[/quote] YES! I’M INJURED AGAIN! Before you put your fist through the …

So… [drums fingers on table] Erm… I… Er… Well. Difficult post this week. A couple of days late as well, thanks directly to the fact that I sat here for about two hours yesterday unable to put fingers to keyboard.

Freeletics reboot in… fourteen days?

In Freeletics, Injury problems, Life by All This Running Around2 Comments

Here I am again, with another wholly unsatisfactory post regarding injuries and old age. It’s been almost three weeks since my last post and in the meantime I’ve spent two weeks in France drinking pretty much all the wine I could force down my stupid fat neck. It was lovely, but not especially conducive to working out. (Not especially conducive …
