New Heart Rate Monitor

Thursday, October 13, 2011

My "hitting 160 lbs." reward was a new heart rate monitor :D I got the Polar FT7, since it was on sale. Plus I don't know what all the differences are between all the FT-whatever number ones. So far, I am LOVING it compared to my old one!! My old one is a New Balance one. It was great until it was acting up and not reading my heart rate correctly because I was sweating so much on the strap. Since it was incorrectly reading it, I was also getting an inaccurate idea of my calorie burn. Now with the Polar, you have to get the strap wet before you use it, so I guess that means that when I'm sweating it's still working great! And the strap feels more comfortable than my old one. All in all I'm really happy with my purchase :D

Next up is new running shoes at 155!!

As a side note: October is pretty much half over already, and so far I've been rocking it compared to how September went! I'm really proud of myself :)
