I'm falling in love with mine all over again. I just started HR training with my running, trying to stay in 65-75% of my maximum heart rate. It's HARD to go that slow! I have to walk! ARG!
But it's making me so much more aware of my surroundings (like how an incline or decline affects my effort) and I feel like I can run FOREVER at that pace, so I'm getting in longer workouts.
I want to try to use it to do some high-intensity-interval workouts in the next few weeks. I know that I'll wimp out if I just use "perceived exhaustion"...but if I use my HR as a guide, I think I'll be able to develop some more mental-muscle and stay in the high-intensity zones more consistently.
Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day.
