So, sick of the lies being told to me by Strava and Map My Run, I decided to give Runkeeper a whirl today on my 5k run of week 4. And it was a HOOT! You have a choice of voice prompters, and I went with “Your Conscience”...
To my delight, as well as giving you your stats, it also makes witty remarks. Here are a few I got along the way:
“You are running like a gazelle across the plains of Africa” 😂
“After this great run you deserve to sit on the couch and drink a bottle of wine! (Just kidding)”
“You are running like a hippopotamus - don’t worry they are fast!”
The run itself wasn’t the best due to it already being 18 degrees and humid at 6:30am. I am not good in humidity at all. Bright red face, sweating, it was like running through treacle and I really had to focus hard to keep going. But the positive is that Runkeeper worked AND made me laugh.
