My husband suggested I start wearing his heart rate monitor so I can ensure my heart rate stays elevated in the 'zone' while I am working out! I was playing around with it last night while I was cleaning house and doing laundry and it's so interesting to see how to elevate it! I ran with it this morning and was surprised at how high my HR goes when running uphill! Holy Crud! I felt a little bad pulling the dog up the hill - but it's a fun little tool! I thought that the little pauses in my run to wait for the dog was hurting me, but I barely noticed the difference on my HR monitor! See Rexxy, it's ok you like to stop and mark every bush along the way and pause for a moment of grass chomping! LOL!
