I had a few pounds given to me for my birthday, so today I bought myself a new toy...
A Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) - Kalenji CW 100
I had originally gone to the shop (Decathlon) to buy a stopwatch. But as the HRM was only £15, just £2 more expensive than the stopwatch, I thought I should just go for it. The watch has a stopwatch function built in anyway, so if I don't want to use the HRM I can just use the stopwatch on it's own.
I'll have to work out my resting heart rate and maximum heart rate, then work out my beats per minute training zones and then I'll be good to go.
btw.. The photos are borrowed from the Decathlon website.
