W2R2........... tech aghhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

well what can I say the run was fine it was the tech, to do the run that was the problem, iPod kept jumping podcasts, arm strap came undone and headphones died, thankfully just as Laura said I had completed my runs and only had the cool down to finish. A majority of the difficulties came at the start of the run meaning that I restarted 5 mins in this meant I had to run through the woods, unfamiliar running territory but focusing on the positive completed the run, just made me think what we would do without all the tech????

  • What a faff, eh? That sounds so frustrating but great that you didn't give up and persevered :-) hopefully the next run will be glitch free!

  • Techno is great in the main, but can be a pain at times, I usually recharged the battery after every run regardless, well done!๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Is that your battery or your gadget? xxx :)

  • I annoy myself by my reliance on it! I had a few app issues at various stages and once did a really good run checked the route tracker so knew what I'd done , but the phone decided not to save it. Made me feel like the run didn't count because I didn't have evidence which is stupid , how did runners manage pre tech with just a wrist watch!

  • heavyhorse exactly.... how did we do it before all the tech, i go out with my iPod for the app and my phone to track it and of course in case anything happens and my earphones takes an extra ten mins to get out the door cos it all goes in certain places so i can actually run lol

  • Tee hee.. It happens to us all...I nearly got blown off a dam last week, fiddling with my music!!!

    Onwards and upwards.. well done anyway..music or not :)

  • I must say i wasn't really paying attention walking along along a long narrow country road lol must remember safety first next time hehe
