Well I’ve decided to take on those 30 day challenge apps to see if I can get myself fit again and hopefully start a running app once I feel limbered up. The 30 day apps consist of about 10 different exercises for arms, legs and abs development with the repetitions increasing slightly each day. There are 4 levels. Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Expert. Naturally I recognised some time ago I wasn’t as fit as I use to be. In my teens I had no trouble getting over a six foot fence but thanks to the drinking, smoking and gauging on fatty foods in my twenties to mid thirties I’d be lucky to run 100 metres before collapsing exhausted in a heap. Look at that gut!
I have just completed day three of training. God I ache all over, but not as much as Day one which left me with a cramp in my left thigh. To be fair I do feel a little more flexible around my joint despite the pain. Tomorrow is the first rest day (as is every fourth day) and I have achieved two awards on the app. Once the pain has subsided I will consider starting the running app as well. On day thirty I shall post another pic of me on here and see if there are any differences before going in to Intermediate level. In the meantime here’s another reminder of how flacid things have become. Sorry! And watch this space.
Teaser trailer for Tin Man Games up and coming Fighting Fantasy based dungeon crawl app. And isn’t it looking fantastic!!
I’m beginning to reap the benefits of backing #TinManGames recent Kickstarter project, #TheWarlockOfFiretopMountain , as my Tinny badge has arrived through the post today. That’s a good postal service for this time of year. Regardless, this is a very exciting project, especially as my name will feature in Zagors crypt. #FightingFantasy has come such a long way in the past two years, and becoming part of it makes me feel as enduring fan as ever.
Payday and I can’t get to the bank as its teeming hard with torrential rain. I have just checked my #Android app #RainAlarm and I still have about an hour to go before the rains lift. Its a minor convenience as it has been relatively dry here in #Lincolnshire. The soil is like brickdust so the plants have suffered somewhat.
Tonight I plan to film myself playing Centurian so I need to get in town and but a shot glass. I’m going to film it in #timelapse as well and watch myself get gradually inebriated with my mates on Facebook. Just for a laugh. Right now though, time for a mushroom cupasoup !
Well today i started to use the Zombies 5K app to train me into a 5 km runner. I had no idea i had become so unimaginably unfit over the last 20 years. I used to be able to run 5k without thinking twice in my late teens but it seems 20 years of pollutants like alcohol, cigarettes and fast food have really taken their toll to the point id struggle to make 200 meters. This app is a fun way to get back into things and i completed the first two challenges. (thirty minutes freeform and workout1)
Ill keep you all posted on my progress…
