Running like RoboCop

As a Masters athlete, I typically workout by myself.  This means I have no one to time me, no one to watch my technique…hell, I’ve got no one to even talk to.   To help combat all these drawbacks, I have to suit up like RoboCop.

On my right arm: iPhone 5, streaming Pandora usually or using Cadence when running 1500 meter tempo work (set to 95+/-5 beats per second).

In both ears: Jaybird BlueBud X — (review to come on these awesome bluetooth headphones — here and on thewgub.com)

On my left arm: SoloShot transmitter, which is sync’d with the SoloShot tripod for video capture (with a camera…but hopefully in the future an iPad running Coach’s Eye).  I will be reviewing SoloShot for Track and Field in the near future (here and on thewgub.com).

Around my waist: FreeLap, baby!  Read my review here.

Over my eyes: Nike Sunglasses (I wear these religiously…it may be a placebo for fighting back migraines).  I like Nike because they are light and rest comfortably on my nose…but unlike the other products above, I’m not married to these.

Here’s a couple of my first test videos with the SoloShot.  These are pretty zoomed out…following the recommendations from SoloShot.  But I’ve been experimenting with getting closer.  Sometimes it works perfectly, sometimes I get in front or behind the frame…I can’t tell you how frustrating that is…especially when you do something good and want to watch it (like yesterday).  Still working out the kinks.
