I really liked this!!

Friday, May 25, 2012

Today is a cardio day, and since I have the day off, I decided that instead of hopping on the exercise bike, something I enjoy very much, by the way, that I'd go out for a walk. I strapped on my heart rate monitor, which I only sort of know how to use, and took little T to the bus stop and then went on my way. One of the features of this monitor is that it beeps at you if you aren't working hard enough to have your heart rate up into the aerobic zone. The purpose, of course, is to tell you when you have to work harder.

But today, I learned about another feature: it beeps at you if you are working TOO hard!! Imagine my delight when the little thing started to beep at me as I pumped my arms (looking a little like a dodo, I'm sure) walking down the street! Loved everything that signified!

Have a Sparky day!!!

    I love my heart rate monitor. I had to shut off the alarm on mine, because Turbo Jam and Turbo Fire keeps my heart rate up. Way to go on the walk!

    dodos get healthy, non dodos sit on the couch? Be a dodo!

    Technology can be a struggle for sure, glad you are learning as you are actually using the device and it is not sitting in a drawer.
