. or youtube part1 part2
(+2 other parts)
I recorded at 1280x960 and rescaled/compressed to 640x480 for uploading. the vimeo video is full length but lower quality since I had to get it under 500MB. Youtube on the other hand, just has a 15min length limit (though some people have no limit) so it's in parts. The camera itself will split videos every 4GB, which is a 32-bit m4v limit apparently, so I had to stitch two parts back together while compressing.
The gps track is not so great, I had the 305 on 1s recording since I was looking to capture all the pauses, but it seems like I got a bunch of bonus zigzags too. The pause at 22mins is the main screw falling out of the head-mount hinge. You can hear it rattling the whole time before that. I actually heard it bounce off the ground but didn't see it until I went back, I guess it's lucky I was crossing a paved trail right then. The hinge is tight enough that the camera stayed attached until I pulled it off.
This was mostly a good run, the camera is heavier than a headlamp and was definitely a distraction but I should be able to get used to it. It made me a bit less lazy, for example I sometimes don't bother getting separate control descriptions for local races, but didn't want to be caught on video unfolding the map to check the codes. on the other hand, there were a few places I felt pressured to keep going when I might have had a longer look at the map. not sure if that is good or bad. I haven't really spent any time in the last few years thinking about or working on technique, so maybe this will be a good excuse. I'm counting 13, 15, and maybe 4 as mistakes.
The map has a bunch of local distortions, you can see the AP and QR tracks don't line up in some places, this is because QR warps your track to the map, but google earth doesn't warp the map to your track, it just uses the best fit. Some extra/changed trails, like approaching 7 and 13.
The ground was frozen hard and my knees felt a bit beat up by the end. lower back was all good.
