Back from An Almost Analogue April and, I can tell you, that it isn’t always easy, but it is well worth trying.
How much extra time we took, doing things in an analogue style, was made up for by the amount of time we saved, and used differently, NOT doing things in a digital style.
I have been reading. Yes! Books. (Well half a big grown ups book!) Cycling. Sanding wooden boxes. Talking to people. Cooking. And, Oh so much more… that I won’t bore you with right now.
One of the cheats we did make (and I will confess there have been a few) was a great iPhone app, called RunKeeper.
This is a remarkable gem, and the educational possibilities are many.
RunKeeper, is an iPhone application that enables you to use the built-in GPS in your iPhone 3G to track all of your outdoor fitness activities, including duration, distance, pace, speed, elevation, calories burned, and path you stumbled along, on a map.
