Splurged on myself...
Friday, March 19, 2010
So I finally broke down & bought myself a heart rate monitor. I've wanted one for years, I used one while in college since I studied Exercise Physiology, but never real felt I did consistent amount of exercise to warrant the use of one.
After going for the last 2 months walking at least 2 times per week (most weeks 3+ times per week) for at least an hour, I decided I earned one. Not to mention I found it on clearance (really the only way I shop) plus if I want to get into jogging & train for a 5K this summer, I figure I could really use one.
I'm kind of bummed I didn't have the time today to take it out & use it, but I'm hoping tomorrow evening to take it out for a test drive (even if I just wear it while doing chores around the house) so come Monday I know how to use.
Its funny how something so small can make you feel different. Almost like a real athlete (not sure how to express it, but I guess that is the closest I can come up with). I'll post more about the monitor once I get it out of the box!
