Conclusive proof that I'm a lazy soccer player

I've only had my last pair of indoor soccer shoes for about 8 months, but I already busted a seam on the side of the left boot.  It's still playable (and I've been playing with it like that for a few weeks), but it's an excuse to buy some new ones.  This time, I went with the adidas Freefootball x-pro, pictured below.


And since these are miCoach compatible, I went ahead and bought an adidas miCoach Speed Cell.  This is a little chip that fits in a slot under the insole of the left boot, and tracks your movement.  I played my first game with these shoes (and chip) tonight, and the results are in - see screenshot below, or go to this link.


I apparently spend half the game either on the bench or not doing very much.  And I'm only running or sprinting a quarter of the time.  I covered about 1.6 miles over the course of the two 20-minute halves, with a max speed of 17.69 mph (which could probably get me under 5 seconds in a 40 yard dash).  I was playing with some aftereffects of a thigh bruise suffered 3 nights ago, so I hope to improve on that max speed in the future.
