let table = base.getTable("Customer Survey Prod");
let field = table.getField("Aged Days");
let query = await table.selectRecordsAsync({fields: [field]});
let recordsToDelete = query.records.filter(
record => record.getCellValue(field) > 7
)
console.log(recordsToDelete);
for (let deleteRecord of recordsToDelete) {
await table.deleteRecordAsync(deleteRecord.id);
}

I am running into a 30 minute error when running this is there a way to fix it?

const table = base.getTable('Customer Survey Prod');
const field = 'Aged Days';


const filterRecord = (record) => record.getCellValue(field) > 7;

const deleteRecords = async (records) => {

    let targetRecords = records;

    while (targetRecords.length) {
        await table.deleteRecordsAsync(targetRecords.slice(0, 50));
        targetRecords = targetRecords.slice(50);
    }
}


let records = await table.selectRecordsAsync({ fields: [field] })
.catch(err => console.log(err))
.then(query => query.records);


let recordsToDelete = records.filter(filterRecord);

if (recordsToDelete.length) {
    await deleteRecords(recordsToDelete);
}
