Weight and Stuff Report – 27 July 2011

Despite it being another dull grey morning, I persuaded myself that I should walk to work. I even remembered to start the Runkeeper app on my iPhone, which logged my progress here. When I left the office, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the clouds had cleared, the sky was blue, the sun was shining and err, well, that was about it, actually. But this did inspire me to turn left, which meant that I walked home instead of getting the bus. I took a slightly different, and according to Runkeeper, slightly longer route home, which was slightly harder work what with it being warmer, me being more tired, and the little matter that coming home is more uphill than down. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, anyway.

Having done that, I’m taking a break from the exercise bike for tonight. Don’t want to overdo these things and then find I have to stop…

Your picture for today is a goat.

Great Orme Goat

Great Orme Goat

Apparently he’s quite well-known on the Great Orme. The shop even sells “I’ve seen the goat” souvenirs. I didn’t buy any, though.

    Just looked up RunKeeper in the Android market place and the reviews are, um, how shall I say this … highly variable. Some people say it sucks and some people love it to death, best thing since sliced bread, etc. What’s your experience been?

      For what I use it for, it’s fine. Logs my distance walked, works out average speeds, and does a reasonably accurate track of my route. Not as accurate as my Garmin GPS device, but good enough. The automagic updating to the web thingy is nice. Of course, I’m not using it on a droid, and the experience there may be different.
