Zombies !!

I've just done something daft and bought this App:

play.google.com/store/apps/...

I'll have to give it a try sometime next week, I'm taking it easy today as I have sore, swollen glands in my neck and I'm hoping to be ok to run in the Turkey Trot race tomorrow.

Anyway, for anyone slightly insane who feels they're in a bit of a rut with their running, the idea is that you can turn your run into a mission by avoiding and escaping from zombies, a sort of extreme interval training !! You collect trophies on your run that you can then use as part of an adventure and strategy game afterwards. I don't play any computer or on-line games like this at all so that will be totally new to me - I just couldn't resist ;-)

Ha ha! That looks like great fun! Pity I don't have a phone capable of playing it.

Excellent I saw that. I would love to know what its like.

You can go to events where they do it for "real"! Not real zombies obviously but people dressed up as zombies chasing you down the road.

I saw that recently - I wish there was one locally, it all gets too expensive when you start travelling all over the place to run.

So jealous, sounds like fun, I'm like Beads, not got a phone which downloads apps :( Enjoy. Don't think I like the idea of zombies chasing me down the road for real though...

I might try it out in woodland next weekend - if I scare myself i might run faster. Must try not to scream though ;-)

Probably best not to try it out during a race or parkrun either....

One of my Facebook freinds mentioned using a Zombies run app, and I thought it shouldn't slightly crazy, Fun, but crazy fun.

Haven't tried it yet - waiting for the weekend. I've been very weary (idle?) this week :-(

Did my first zombies run last night. Good fun and it made me run further/faster than before but provided a great distraction so the time passed quickly. :) How are you doing with it?

Still haven't tried it - I need to fit it around two club runs in the week and whatever is planned for the weekend. Yesterday I did our 1st Telford Parkrun and today I ran in a 10k off-road race. One day I'll fit it in ...sigh....
