Getting ready for longer runs

August 29, 2010

I rested for a week today I am ready for longer run. I wanted to make the run easy so I was pretty slow and heart rate was well within green zone for the first 40 minutes. As usual at the end I can’t resist to speed up a bit.

Philips Activa

I normally don’t write about product/services/gadget that I’m not using. Since I bought Philips sports earphone earlier so this Philips Activa I saw in a shop drew my attention. This gadget doesn’t include heart rate monitor but I’m sure this will be included later. It works like a pedometer and a MP3 player with voice over coaching at the moment.

I actually ordered this early August and received it on the second week. The magic mouse I talked about earlier has retired to a drawer.

I use my MBP as a desktop with an external HP 17″ monitor and an external keyboard it’s a good match with an external trackpad like this.

Highest score and lowest average HR ever

August 22, 2010

The key to this high score was that my stride length was smaller since I worried a bit about my right knee.    It turned out that my knee was alright but right leg was a bit tired hence the smaller stride length.    I discovered that at this stride length heart rate was still low at higher stride rate.
