Rate: Christmas is [Mr.] Wonderful
I just wanted to take a minute to announce......
I GOT AN AWESOME HEART RATE MONITOR!
Mr. Wonderful did good.
I am now the proud owner of a Suunto M5 heart rate monitor and foot pod (which measures distance and speed). Isn't she cute (see above)?
On top of that, my mother (aka Santa Claus) got me a nice pair of running capris and and a running shirt and long-sleeve top layer. And I must say, she bought it for me just in time... it's like 40 Degrees here today! I know all you East coasters are facing a blizzardy death, but I've been enjoying the breezy and beautiful 75 degree weather.. until now. Ah, but I do love the built-in hand warmers in my top later. Delightful.
Well at 5AM this morning I sported my new clothing and my new Suunto and all the passing cars and pedestrians may have mistaken me for a pro... until I started running at turtle pace.
But good gear = good runner... right?
I'll be super fast in no time... right?
I WISH. However I have been diligently doing my PT exercises and I am feeling better and better. I'll bring you up to speed in the next post. Promise.
Now here' s a question for y'all.... How does one start rowing?! I would really like to try rowing and my knees would greatly appreciate it if I took it easy on them sometimes. So please rowing experts, advise!
