You May Get Hot, But How Racey Are You?

Image of Timex Ironman Heart Rate Monitor WatchMichelle is a cardio maniac and the queen of cardio equipment.  As we were preparing for thanksgiving and setting calorie burning goals, she enlightened me on the calorie-burn-tracking.  A heart rate monitor!  I ended up getting the Timex Ironman Road Trainer Digital Heart Rate Monitor (women’s mid-size) and I love it.

[REVIEW] Timex Ironman Road Trainer Digital Heart Rate Monitor

What I use it for

After setting my target heart rate, I use it to make sure I keep my intensity up.  Sometimes I FEEL like I am working hard, but then I look down at my HR reading and realize I am going too easy on myself.

I have a small wrist, so watches are sometimes hard to shop for.  This one has a billion holes, so it fits even MY wrist 😛

Bottom Line: I love it.

Still trying to figure out how to get the calories to display…I thought this watch did that, but haven’t found it yet.  Maybe I should read the manual 😛

Keeping your intensity in check? How do YOU do it? (especially on days that you don’t want to be there)
