6 Things my heart monitor taught me!

February 07, 2012
  1. There is indeed, no need for speed! To train in your optimal training zone, speed is not always best. I have learned that, to stay in 'the zone', I sometimes have to move slower!
  2. Running in the morning requires more effort than running in the evenings. At night I can run at much greater speed without my heart beat going through the roof.
  3. When I'm under the weather, my heart rate is much higher than usual during my runs.
  4. To get into the zone, when I'm on my bike, I have to really push the pedals!
  5. Listening to music, makes it harder to stay 'in the zone'. Music makes me run too fast.
  6. I love numbers! I love knowing how fast I went, how many calories I burnt, and how much time during my run I was in the zone. It makes my running results more tangible.
Do you use a heart monitor?

  1. I don't use mine as often as I should. I think I will take it out today and start using it again!
