I’m so happy to have my heart rate monitor back!
I’m not one of those runners who needs a million toys with them when they leave the house. I don’t usually wear a watch, I’ve never worn a pedometer, and most headphones start to bother my ears after only a couple miles. That said, I do own a heart rate monitor . . . but, sadly it’s been dead for months 😦
It’s just the battery, and it took me all of 20 minutes and $12 to get it working again. I guess that says something about how little I missed it, but boy was I excited to have it back! I think it was just what I needed to make today’s run just a little bit quicker and a little bit further than usual.
I felt good about today’s run, but I’m still worried about the impact of higher temperatures come Race Day. The 10 day forecast predicts 80 degree T-storms. That’s not good, but how reliable is the 10 day forecast?
