Zombie Run - Jolly Alpha Five Niner - Complete
Sunday, January 27, 2013
So, on my list of accomplishments, today I actually got to start A) my calorie counting, carb watching, water gulping, protein and salad eating diet and B) my first Zombie Run mission!
I cannot tell you how much fun this game is. It is one of the best motivators for exercise I have ever had the blessing to find. I have actually gotten three of my friends addicted to this thing with me, it is that good. My boyfriend and I are also doing it together.
To explain what Zombie Run is, I have to say that A) it is a game B) it helps you exercise. A story is played intermittently throughout your 30 minute run. It's a very interesting story, and actually, a little bit sad. I'm trying not to give too much away by saying this, but you, as a runner (to help gather supplies for your militia encampment) are Runner 5, the new replacement for the other runner, who, alas, died. You now have to go on these runs to get supplies and help build up your fortification.
These missions are your exercises. I made sure to set my game to 30 minute mission increments. It was wonderful. Get this, I can actually say something I have never said before: I CANNOT WAIT TO GO AT IT AGAIN TOMORROW.
I ran for 31:58 today, made 4109 paces, and my paces were 128.5 paces per minute. I was able to obtain 21 supplies (my boyfriend only got 15--HA!)
I have also stuck to my diet today, no splurging. So far, so good. Let's see if tomorrow's any better.
