Considering it was only my second run in my new Brooks I kept going and completed a strong 5K.
I was probably fuelled by some pent up anger caused by Sweatshop.
As you know I ordered myself a new Tom Tom Runner Cardio watch and was pleased to hear it had been delivered to the office yesterday (I was off site yesterday).
I opened the parcel today to find the watch had been opened previously and all the packaging was all over the place. It was obvious the watch was a return and I was sure I was not going to part with that much money for something someone else had opened and used.
So after some trouble finding a number (you only get sent one when you complain online and they send a phone number in the email if you want to contact them urgently…)… I eventually got through to someone who told me to send it back and explain I would like it exchanged for a new one (funny I thought I was buying a new one).
Sweatshop would refund the postage too…
This is all well and good but it probably means I will not get my replacement (if I get my replacement, my faith in Sweatshop is minimal at present) until next week now.
This really is a poor show on their behalf 0 it even took most of the day for them to pick up on my moan about them on Twitter.
When I spend this much money I at the very least expect a brand new unit from the manufacturer – not something that’s been discarded or tested by someone else!
Anyway I hope to bring you and update and a review with the watch soon!
That said it was a good run today and although it was very blustery in places I did enjoy the conditions. It was sunny and warm which made for a pleasant run. Plus the roadworks have gone so I am back to running my normal route.
I tracked todays run with iSmoothRun and am pleased with the efforts today. Check out the stats on Strava.
