Laura abandoned me :(

My dearest Laura, is this the end of our wonderful relationship? I know you never really appreciated my playlists or me eyeing up Endomondo behind your back, but did you have to leave me just when I needed you most? My last run in week 8, just getting over an infection, a massive corn on my big toe and a ban on eating Easter Eggs - I so much needed to hear your words of encouragement, but other than the usual hello and start the warmup, you didn't give me the time of day. Is this the beginning of the end?

Please come back!!!!


Well, I can say that it definitely is her and not me - I'm sorry to announce that Laura has fallen into the Space-Time continuum. After giving me a 7 minute warmup instead of 5, my next chat - supposedly 5 minutes into my 30 minute run came 32 minutes later, just a as I was getting into my cool down.

What I'm struggling to understand is why it's happened now - up to the Week 8 Run 2 she was working just fine with second-perfect timings (I've double checked against my Endomondo tracking), and now she's off with the fairies somewhere. Others have commented on how flaky the app was but I could't relate to this until now.

Oh well, it looks like I'll be dusting off 'Laura Prime' and reverting to the pod casts for the rest of week 9!

It's not you, it's her.


Oh that's it! Blame Laura! Ask yourself, why did she leave you? What did you do to her - apart from eyeing up Endomondo behind her back - that would cause her to clam up? Hmmm something you said, something you did - or didn't do???? Did you remember to thank her after each run, did you argue with her or even swear at her?

I think you have to claw your way back into her affections while you still have time. Don't let the sun go down on an argument. I know you feel bad now but if you let this fester it will only be the worse for you

It's all in your hands

You're just not thinking straight JBBYork. Banning Easter eggs has turned your mind to jelly. Have an egg and the solution will become clear.


You must of done something major to upset her lol. By the way, if you go into the music bit of Endomondo and you have already downloaded laura she will show up there - Endomondo and Laura together what more could you ask for 😃


Oh tis truly marriage made in heaven


Looks like further evidence of LauraAppFlakyitis...
