Out & Aboot

I took the boot out for some exercise this afternoon:


Summer hasn’t quite left us yet, as you can see from this colourful but otherwise rather uninspiring pic from Wynberg Boys High.

This as Sheffield suffers in freezing temperatures and under heavy snowfalls. I still miss those sort of days, but I wouldn’t want to be on crutches in the snow and ice, believe me.

Endomondo Error?

I’m a big fan of Endomondo. I use it to track all my exercise: it makes it much easier to keep track of how I’m doing and it makes it much harder for me to slack off when I feel like slacking off. And I’m happy enough with the way things are going pace-wise right now, or at least I was until I saw this posted to Facebook:

Yes, it would appear that this Endomondo-using friend of mine has gone the extra mile (or the extra 271.95km) when it comes to training. And she’s done that with weights as well.
To be honest, if I were her, I’d be totally knackered rather disappointed to have only used up 558 calories after almost a hour’s hard work getting to St Helena Bay and back.

Unless of course she did it by helicopter, which, given the average speed of 308.2kph, seems entirely likely.

I’m off to work on my running again. I have some catching up to do.
And I don’t have a helicopter.
