More heart rate fun

I was still a little stiff yesterday from the Saturday effort up at Lake Tahoe, but got to the gym for a good treadmill workout this morning. Got the heart rate monitor working for an interval session, too - I had been curious how it would look. Well, here it is:

About what I expected - heart rate climbed steadily during the intervals, and recovered less each time. I've really got to do some reading to decide if I want to include this as part of my training, or if I'll just use it as a fun tool to compare where my fitness is. (Today's workout was a 4 x 4 minute set of intervals at 6:30 pace with 2 minute jogs in between.)

That's a pretty sweet little gizmo you got there~ :) It's fun to track and see how hard your heart is working, even if you don't use your monitor to train by. I always check mine right when I stop running, just to see how close it was to my last run, although I never record it.
