My garmin has the ability to track my heart rate but since it’s the 620 model I would have to wear the strap. I used to do that occasionally when I first got it until I got a serious case of the rubs.
So as you can imagine, I was pretty happy when I got my Fitbit HR. I like the fact that it tracks my heart rate constantly and the only real issue was finding a way to wear both the Garmin and the Fitbit, but nothing in life is ever really as easy as we think it will be.
Fortunately I’ve always worn my garmin really low down on my wrist. It helps to keep my sweat from getting into the charge contacts and also prevents the dreaded garmin tan. However, the fitbit has to be worn further up the wrist to be able to accurately track your heart rate. So while I may not have the awful garmin tan, I have this.
I don’t have to worry about it today because I woke up at 5:30 this morning and decided to go right back to sleep. I’m going to do yoga instead. I’m really starting to enjoy it especially since I’ve seen how it’s helping my running.
Yesterday, I did a few 400 repeats just to see where my speed is at. I didn’t expect to see anything near 8 minutes since it’s been a year or so that I’ve been able to really do serious speed work so I was shocked to see that my best pace was in the 7’s. THE 7’S. I’m surprised I didn’t shit my pants.
I’m sticking with yoga.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I’ve posted catch and release videos for the past few days. I just wanted to clarify that we aren’t doing this for any other reason than to get all these critters out of the back yard and I wanted to do it humanely.
That’s not the reason that I’m mentioning it though, I just wanted to show you a few pictures of the most recent tenants we’ve evicted and clarify that I now know the difference between a raccoon and a possum.
I’m glad to hear that raccoons are much cuter than possums but also hoping to catch the one that keeps flipping the garbage cans and making a mess!
Lastly, I may have to change the name of the blog to anarobeeovomitz.com. How does that sound? Bad huh? Yeah, I thought so too.
Okay, I kid, I’m not changing the name but I had some real fun with this infographic.
Okay it’s your turn, whether you run or not, using the infographic above tell me your runner name.
What kinds of animals do you have in your yard?
