30 Minute interval run a day late

Wednesday 15th May 2019

Well today I ran yesterdays run.

Tuesday was my day off from work, I had the day planned as usual, I had to get my car fixed in the morning then do all the pre-check bits on my motorcycle ready for a mini solo camping holiday I have booked for myself next week, I planned to end the day with a lovely evening run.

Well in the morning I was on my knees in the bathroom hugging the toilet and feeling very unwell, I landed up going back to bed and sleeping the morning and early afternoon off.

I think I had just over done it, I spent the day on Monday cleaning the garden and sheds and did not get as much sleep as I should have.

So Tuesday evening was spent playing catchup so my running week has now started a day later than planned.

Todays run was a 30 minute interval run, I really enjoyed the run even though my hip was still aching a bit.

  • Distance

    3.53 mi

  • Pace

    8:33 /mi

  • Time

    30m 10s

I have however managed to buy myself a new budget action camera (CamPak) and got to test it out today. The camera worked great with really good picture quality and sound. The camera even came with a spare battery and remote control, a nice carry case and the usual fixings, for under £40.00 I am really impressed.

Time for work, Night all

I wanted to get out on Saturday for a cycle ride but it just did not happen 😦

I have had fun with my action camera trying to practice as I want to video my run at the end of the month when I am down the coast.

I recorded myself chatting away about random stuff on all three of my weekday runs, I did get some strange looks running around the streets chatting to my action camera but I did not care too much as I need to get used to it.

Frustratingly Tuesdays and Wednesdays footage had no sound, I did find the problem eventually though so it was not all bad.

It turns out that if you pressed the down button then the sound mutes, the icon to tell you that the mic is muted is hidden in the lower left hand corner which gets hidden behind the case so thumbs down to Kitvision on that design (escape 4kw). The wi-fi is still not working I shall be returning the camera anyway.

Thursday I used my sons camera (Kitvision escape HD5W). This did not have the mic problem and also the wi-fi worked although it was far from perfect. I landed up not using the wi-fi and connecting the camera to my PC at the end of my run to drag the video footage across.

My sons camera was half the price of mine but worked much better, when I send mine back I will probably get one the same as his.

So out of the 3 days I finally got some great footage (to me anyway) – 40 minutes off me talking random stuff to the camera, finally 🙂

Off to sleep now, Night all
