The fat runner gets a new toy!

So, for those of you who don't know, I am totally and completely addicted to my nike+ for my iPod nano. Addicted. I get my mileage, calories burned, a power song... online tracking. I could go on and on and on.

And so far, that's been enough for me to be satisfied... until I got word of another cool tool for weight loss and training. The heart rate monitor.

So, dork that I am, I start doing research... and whoa! This cool toy will give me much of the same information as my nike+, except it's all about ME! My info, my heart rate, and my true calories burned- what true geek could resist that?

So, off I go to do more reasearch, and I finally decide on the Polar F6... find a great deal on eBay (gotta love eBay), and I got my toy yesterday! This fat runner spent HOURS last night playing with this newfound wonderland of information.

This morning, I woke up, pysched to try my new HRM (heart rate monitor, for those of you wondering)... alas, mother nature conspired against me, and it was snowing. (Yes, yes, I have a treadmill, but I *ahem* chose to remain in the warm comfort of my bed... a fat runner for another day). Tonight, however, I will be running- be it outside or on the dreadmill. :)
