Freeletics: the ultimate love/hate relationship

In Freeletics by All This Running Around3 Comments

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 perhaps you have sat up …

hindsight noun understanding of a situation or event only after it has happened or developed. “with hindsight, I should never have tried to star those fucking pull-ups” So here’s the thing.

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

In Freeletics by All This Running Around2 Comments

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.
