10 characteristics that show you’ve become an insufferable prick

In Bollocks, Freeletics by All This Running Around5 Comments

Right, you’d better brace yourselves. Even by my usual standards, this is a pretty bilious post. There will be swearing, there will be complaining and there will be cynicism. None of which tie in particularly well to the Freeletics experience. Which, as you will see, is kind of the point. At this point, I have only a vague idea of …

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 …
