My New Best Friend: Polar FT60 Heat Rate Monitor Do you have a heart rat

My New Best Friend: Polar FT60 Heat Rate Monitor

Do you have a heart rate monitor?  If you do not, it will change your life.  I am obsessed.  I can’t run/workout without it now.  I used to think on the elliptical I wasn’t getting any cardio, and it turns out, I wasn’t really.  But I was in that “fat burning” zone which is good to know.  I also found out that I can’t run easy, I’m an all or nothing type runner which means I’ve gotta learn how to slow down if I want to run a half marathon.

I wore this thing yesterday for my first “half marathon” training workout and burned about 550 calories during my 60-minute run.  I was able to keep my heart rate around 160 bpm which I think is good for a long run.  

Today, I wore it while shoveling and was told that I burned about 200 calories… good to know stuff right there.  I plan to do some yoga later in the house.  Looking forward to seeing what those numbers are like.  

Special thanks to @ChrispolarUSA for the heart rate monitor.  I’m looking forward to seeing what else this baby is capable of including the Polar Personal Training website and their YouTube videos.
