It’s the middle of the day, the middle of a work day. I am focussing on this jumble of numbers and easing my way towards a stress headache when my phone vibrates to alert me to the fact that JogBlog has been running. Again.
Since I accepted her Helly Hansen Winter Duel Challenge 3 days ago JogBlog has run twice for a total of 15km.
I find this particularly smarting because although I have been a lazy lard arse for much of 2014 I have actually been out for a run this week and I swear it was longer than the registered 1.07k. Not much longer admittedly but I’m going to find it hard to beat the near ultra running JogBlog if the Winter Duel app is going to continue to curtail my efforts.
I went out again after work and ran around the block 3 times. On each circuit I checked the app to find it had crashed and so pressed the resume training button. This led to a slight improvement in the recorded distance but it still robbed me of a third of my efforts.
I have it on good authority that JogBlog will not have much opportunity to run this weekend, so I may have to take my chances with the dodgy app and knock out the odd marathon or two to catch up.
