Yesterday I went to go pick up my race packet for the Friends on Katy Trail 5K. I’m excited, but a little nervous, probably because this is my first real race since track in high school. (Ages ago.) Luckily though, I’ll be going with a big group of people who are all experienced racers, and have run this particular race before. So all will be well.
I went to go pick up my packet at Luke’s Locker, I had never been there before. In fact, it’s been a while since I went and bought new shoes (still working on funds to buy the new running shoes I need), and most of my fitness gear is from Target. There was so much stuff I loved… I think you know you’re turning into a real fitness enthusiast when you would rather buy Nike’s and dry fit tanks than high heels and a new top. Crazy, huh?
Besides new dry fit tanks and running shorts, including a tank style from Lululemon I saw on Life of Blyss,
I have my heart set on buying a heart rate monitor watch. It’s not like my workouts are suffering right now without one, but I think it would motivate me to workout even harder on the days I need it, and make sure I’m getting the most out of my workouts.
The Polar FT40 was recommended to me. I like the white color, and it’s one of the top rated HR monitors out there. The price around $100 is going to keep me from getting one for a little while though I think.
- What a piece of fitness gear you can’t go without?
- Do you own a heart rate monitor watch? If so, what do you recommend?
