Heart Rate Monitors
Started at Sun May 30 21:25:59 2004 IP67.10.171.71 I'm wondering if anybody owns a heart rate monitor. Mine is an Ironman but, doesn't seem to hold a steady beat. This may be because it works off of F.M. transmission which is supposed to be different from other brands(like Polar). I guess there is too much radio interference in the area.
If anyone has a heart rate monitor that works I would sure like to know about it.

The reason I use a heart rate monitor is to tell if I'm overtraining( A rise in resting heart rate can indicate this ), and be able to judge my progress( A drop in resting heart rate is the norm ). While this is a fitness goal, it does provide short term goals to make the training more enjoyable.

Everything short of that isn't working hard enough. Ergo, it's a very thin line between working too hard and not working hard enough. wink
