Freeletics love/hate

Freeletics: the ultimate love/hate relationship

We’ve all been there. We’ve all had a partner that made us deliriously happy one minute and transformed us into a psychotic rage machine the next. (Well actually, I haven’t. Perhaps you haven’t either. But for the purposes of this latest 1000 word slice of Freeletics-related verbal effluent, let’s pretend that we both have.) Or […]

Freeletics Hell Week

Hell week – again. And this time it’s serious

19 workouts. 17 personal best times. 7156 points. 4 hours, 18 minutes and 39 seconds. I am, in a very real sense, knackered. I am also, unsurprisingly, extremely pleased to be writing this post after it’s all over. I’d suspected that the Coach might have something up it’s sleeve for week 15. What I didn’t […]

The Return


And, we’re back. Phew. Sorry about that. It took a bit longer than I’d thought it would. Anyway, welcome. I’ve sort of done the site myself a bit, and it isn’t finished. But I was so desperate to get it rolling again that I figured it’s better to just get it up, and I can […]

Summing up and shutting down (for a bit)

Hey! It’s you! How you doing? Great to see you! Make yourself comfortable! But get your fucking feet off the coffee table. Can I get you a drink? No, we haven’t got any Early Grey. We’ve got Yorkshire Tea. Yes, they DO grow tea in Yorkshire, actually. In Leeds. What’s that? You’re interested in how I’m getting […]

I’m back and looking like shit

Yes, I know. I said there would be a redesign of the site. And if anything, what I’ve cobbled together here in about ten minutes looks worse than what was here before. But I just haven’t got the time to sit down and play with it (not that) at the moment. So you’re just going […]

Freeletics week 7. And 8. Sorry about that.

There is nothing more pathetic, more worthless, more completely shite than somebody that writes a blog apologising for not having updated their blog. So, here we go. Sorry for not updating the blog. Actually, there is something more pathetic than the above. It’s when the blogger goes on to blame their lack of activity on […]

Freeletics week 5: the art of ignoring the clock

It’s week 5 of my Freeletics and running regime, if you can call it a regime. ‘Regime’ makes it sounds like something that somebody serious and organised would do, rather than a hapless, grunting moron. But credit where credit’s due (ie TO ME), I’m sticking to the plan and it all seems to be working […]

Freeletics week 4: stepping it up (a bit)

It’s difficult to believe that I’ve been ‘back’ doing Freeletics for four weeks already, but I have. It was always my plan to try and ease myself back into things without going crazy, if indeed it’s possible to ‘ease yourself back into’ Freeletics. There’s very little that feels relaxed about doing Aphrodite first thing on […]
