Upton on Seven

I went to Upton on Seven yesterday for a day out. It is one of my favourite places to go on a nice sunny day.

It was quite cloudy yesterday but here is a few clips to gives you a rough idea of what it is like. They were in the midst of setting up for the blues festival that they are running there this weekend.

Trying to make a Youtube video!

As I have had a few days of lately I decided to have a play around and try to create a YouTube video while I was at Trimley Reservoir on Tuesday.

I have never made a video before but recently I have wanted to try and edit a video as it is something I have never tried to do so had no idea if it was something I would even be able to do. I watch a lot of YouTube videos and really enjoy watching videos where they go to places I have never been before. So I thought I would take some footage to show people what the reservoir was like as on a nice sunny day it it such a peaceful place to go.

I actually really enjoyed the process of making the video and would like to try to make some more in the future. I obviously have a lot of improve on as it was my first attempt but overall I am quite happy with how it turned out.

Here is the video I made from the clips that I managed to get:-

Running along the canal yesterday 🙂

 

 

Couch to 5k

Today I completed the first run of the 2nd week of the couch to 5k app. This consisted of a 5 minute warm up walk followed by 90 seconds of running and then 2 minutes walking  which was repeated 6 times and then to end there is a 5 minutes cool down walk.

In total I ran for 9 minutes which is 1 minute longer than last week.

I really enjoyed the run/walk today and it is a great excuse to enjoy being outside as the weather has been so nice.I am looking forward to my next run on Friday.
