Running in Southwold

Hello! Week three video is finally done, it’s been a very busy week and I had a lot of footage from my trip to Southwold that I wanted to edit into a good video for week three of my Marathon training — so it took a bit longer to get this one ready than I had anticipated. But anyway, here it is!

Southwold is a beautiful town on the Suffolk coast with a beautiful harbour, disused railway line and miles of sandy beaches, marshes and meadows. It was a perfect place to run a long marathon training run and go for a cycle ride… even went for a dip in the sea!

During the week I took the running a bit easier than the first two weeks as I could feel my legs were not enjoying all the running as much. I gave my body a couple extra days to recover and it paid off on the weekend run.

Vlog #004: Ladybower Reservoir

I recently got a drone to spice up my videos and I’ve been practising flying it for a few weeks now. There’s still a lot that I have to learn, but I thought this footage from Ladybower reservoir at the weekend was too gorgeous not to share.

My sister, niece, nephew and I made best use of the early spring weather and ventured into the Peak District for a stroll. The Upper Derwent Valley is a beautiful spot to explore, even if the sun wasn’t out on the day we went.

Over time I hope to get more confident with the drone to fly it closer to things, and get more stable sweeping shots, but it’s all a very fun learning curve so far!

For anyone interested, the drone is a DJI Mavic Pro, and this film is shot at 2.7K resolution and 24 frames per second.

Vlog #003: Steam Trains

Another different style for the third vlog. I’ve tried to create a short ‘ode to’ style video that hopefully shows the beauty of steam trains from a visit Emily and I took on the Severn Valley Railway over Christmas.

I’ve already been filming for the next vlog, so hopefully it won’t be more than a month before the next one of these. I hope you’re enjoying them so far as much as I’m enjoying making them.

The music is from Sergey Cheremisinov, a track titled “Train” from the album Charms, with some editing changes made by me. Find out more at freemusicarchive.org

Vlog #002: Cocktails

It’s been longer than I, or anyone else, expected… but here is my second vlog. Deliberately very different from the first so I can see what style I prefer. I expect eventually it will be a mix of the two.

Expect the next one in the new year. Merry Christmas all x
