I’m curious what makes you suggest the forerunner over the apple watch? I don’t really know much about either but I am in the market for a new watch and those were my two main choices. Mind sharing your thoughts a little more?^glad to hear you’re still at it.
recently got my brother to download strava and track his runs with his smart phone. he’s obsessed with it now. prior he was doing the run from the microwave or radio clock and back thing that i’m sure all runners are familiar with. trying to get him to buy an apple (his choice) or forerunner (my suggestion) watch. he doesn’t want to spend the money and i’m trying to explain to him how it will revolutionize his cardio routine (a heart rate monitor changes everything).
hill repeats today. was easy on my heart and lungs so i thought i wasn’t getting a real workout. i can feel it in my calfs now and see i did not waste a run.
That's perfectly fine. Mine goes to about 120 for EASY runs and up to 175 for tempo runs. It also depends a lot on your resting heart rate, do you know what yours is? But as long you're not having heart pains or anything like that I wouldn't worry too muchI really want to start running again. As a guy, I hate lifting weights, but I always enjoyed running and would get a runners high after ~2-3 miles.
I'm really out of shape though these days. Last time I started running again I tore my groin muscle (probably due to improper butterfly stretch pre-run and running uphill).
I tend to push myself a little too hard sometimes.
Also, my heart rate routinely goes up to 180-185bpm even on light jogs... kinda conerning.
Is that normal? :/ (31yr old male)
