Juneathon Day 24

What a great run today!

First run today with the fantastic Zombies, Run! app. After yesterday’s long run and the dodgy weather this morning I was aiming for nice gentle half hour run. I had anything but! 3.73 miles in a pretty swift time due to a bunch of ‘zombies’ on my tail.

The ‘Zombies, Run!’ app is a great way to mix up your training. You become a character in a zombie infested world. You hear the story through headphones in between your song playlist. It all starts off very calm until the zombies realise you’re there! Then you run for your life!

The makers have created a great little app, soon to be integrated with runkeeper, that should keep any runner motivated…

You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first steps outside. You’ve barely covered 100 yards when you hear them. They must be close. You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan – they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run!

Also on my run through town I came across preparations for the arrival of the Olympic Torch. It’s due in town in a week or so…

Total Juneathon mileage after day 24 = 90.10


One thought on “Juneathon Day 24”

  1. I do like the sound of the zombies app but it will probably scare the hell put of me! Might get my geeky teenage son to try it out first (might be one way to get him off his backside!!)
