Thoughts on the [little Apple logo] Watch

I don’t know if you noticed, but this week, Apple announced a new product - their take on the wearable tech phenomenon. Initially, I wasn’t that interested in the watch. That’s partly because the stream of Tim Cook’s keynote address was so bad that I gave up following halfway through and missed all the announcements. It’s also because I wasn’t too keen on the big, square, bulky look. Having investigated subsequently, I really want one.

And so, I’m done. If you’ve been following along, you might remember that May was a bumper month for running activities, including an epic 10k. Unfortunately, that 10k was the pinnacle, and the eventual downfall of my running career. Gradually, things got worse and worse, and at the end of my May monthly update, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do about it. I completed four runs in June.

After the high of new running shoes wore off (only took a week this time, boo!) I wanted a bit of a boost, so I tried out another Zombies Run mission - it’s always good to try something different. I noticed that the people behind Zombies Run are creating a spin off version based on the Couch 2 5K thing. I’m jealous! Can I go back to the beginning and start again with the zombies chasing me this time?

I was a bit late posting the last update, so it feels like only five minutes ago I was writing about being rubbish at running. But here I am back again to talk some more! This week I managed three runs, so we’re back to the minimum that I should be doing, although I still want to do more. It has been three shorter runs this week, though. As mentioned last time, I’m falling into the clutches of going out for just thirty minutes at a time during the week, as the 10k workout requires longer distances and I don’t have the evening hours to spare.

I’m getting a bit fed up of saying “well, this week I didn’t run much” but it turns out to have been another fortnight of frustration. What with family things, work things, and trying to find the right combination of time, weather and energy, I’m just about getting back on top of it. So, last week there was just one run on Monday, and this week I also went out on the Monday.
