Blogger World, meet my new toy. I’m so excited to add this Polar Watch/Heart Monitor to my collection of gadgets that are supposed to help me run faster and farther. Between Little Shuffle and this Watch/Heart Monitor you should be able to track me from the moon.
Friday I purchased my new toy, and I’ve already used it seven times. I love it! This thing tells me my heart rate, how long I’ve been working out, how long my heart rate is at the top of my zone, and how many calories I’ve burned. Isn’t it amazing that a simple watch can tell me all this information? The only thing missing on this watch is People.com.
A few things I’ve learned since I started using the Polar Watch/Heart Monitor. First, my heart stinks. I want a new heart! I can’t get my heart rate up past 167, and my aerobics friends get their heart rates up to 179. This weekend I ran, went to 4 aerobics classes, and played tennis….and nothing. I was working hard, and I still couldn't get it past 167. The second thing is I could eat way more crap than I allow myself. In one my aerobics class I burned 400 calories. I knew that aerobics was working; Guy #3 always said my aerobics classed weren’t doing anything for me. HA! I beg to differ. The final thing I’ve learned is I have way too many gadgets for working out.
