Do you use a Heart Rate Monitor?

    I used one briefly when I first got serious about running - making sure I stayed with in my "target range".
    It soon becme a hassle for me,and I got to where I could tell what my heart rate was at without having to use a monitor.

    But...the one I used was a very basic one, no stopwatch or nothing. So I was wearing 2 "watches", plus the chest strap...ugh.:(

    The HRM that I have transmits a signal to the treadmill for HR. That way, I don't need a watch. Reducing clutter is nice. :)

    I was using one when I was bicycling. I think it is esential for anyone who is a serious cyclist (loose wieght or competition).

    I quickly learned that I could only increase my peddle rate to a point before my heartrate skyrocketed. I could shift to a hire gear and go faster with less heart rate, but the mussels in my leggs would wear out. It is kind of like driving a car without a speedometer or tach.

    I was able to keep my heart rate in the best burn calory area.
    When I didn't push hard enough, I increased peddle rate or shifted to a hire gear.
