How to buy a good heart monitor?

3 days ago

After reading in several books about the importance of breathing, and training in the right 'zone' I had an epiphany: I needed a heart monitor!

My 4 criteria for a heart monitor
After my epiphany, I realized: I'm going to have to some research to find a good heart monitor that is:

a. easy to use
b. easy to use
c. cheap
d. easy to use


And the winners is… the Polar FT4
Luckily I found lots of reviews on amazon.comand after studying them carefully, I decided on the Polar FT4 Women's Heart Rate Monitor Watch (Bronze). It looked pretty, and even though it had five buttons, people were saying it wasn't difficult to manage.

Polar FT4 So far, so good!
I have now run five times with my Polar FT4, and I am pleased with it. I can handle the five buttons without too much hair pulling and hand wrenching, and it offers me the info I wanted: how my heart is doing!

According to the Polar FT4 my best training zone lies between 116 and 151, and I have already made a discovery: apparently I run wáy too fast!

Practical info about Polar FT4
You can get a Polar FT4 for 65,75 USD at Amazon.com.

Do you use a heart monitor during your runs?

Stay tuned for my review of the Polar FT4!

Can I make it?

1 week ago


Running really is very much like life. Sometimes there are obstacles.
The trick is deciding how to handle these obstacles.
Yesterday I was running along when I came across this really big puddle. I couldn't quite decide what to do. I figured I had 3 options:

  1. Try to jump over the puddle
  2. Go back
  3. Walk around the puddle



Hmmm... It really was a big puddle. And quite frankly I did nót think I would be able to jump far enough. And I really did nót want to end up with soaking wet socks and shoes and catch a cold.

So in the end I managed to walk around the puddle.

Because I hate going back.

What would you have done?

Running is freedom

2 weeks ago

Every Sunday I do my long run.

Two and a half hours of running
In my case this means about 2,5 hours of running, interspersed with a nice cup of coffee in a restaurant. Because I plan my long runs around nice restaurants. A restaurant as my destination is a good reason to keep on running. And what can I say: I just love to have my coffee, and drink it too!

I'm in a hurry to get things done
Sometimes when I start out on my Sunday long run, I feel antsy and hasty. I've got this hurried feeling. But then I remind myself:

'It doesn't matter how long it takes me, as long as I get there! Even if it takes me all day, who cares? I'll still have gone the distance.'

That realization, knowing I've got all the time in the world, offers me a wonderful sense of freedom.

Freedom
My long runs on Sunday are pure freedom!
