and only Heart Rate Monitor is dying 😦 I get attached to things and I of course named my HRM. It’s a Polar and her name is Millie. 🙂
I’ve had her for over 2 years and she has been awesome. For about a month now I’ve been having issues on and off. Sometimes it won’t read my heart rate right even though I adjust the strap. I never had issues before that. On Monday the battery icon came on showing that it’s running really low. I have a few weeks before she is a goner. I got really sad when I saw that but I was also happy to know that she wasn’t messing up because she was broken….just the battery.
When I first bought my hrm I didn’t really know much about it and it worked really good for the things I was doing at that time. As I started running more and more I started eyeing a Garmin 😉 I felt guitly, like if I was cheating on Millie. (I know I’m a WEIRDO) Anyway, I just couldn’t get myself to buy a Garmin when my Millie worked perfectly fine. I used mapmyrun if I wasn’t doing a trail that was marked. I was happy with it. Well then Craig got a Garmin and I must admit I was a little jealous. He would show me all the cool things it did and I was happy for him but I also secretly wanted one. LOL.
So when the low battery came on Millie I had two choices…
1) Replace the battery…DUH!!
2) Order a Garmin….I’ve been wanting one for about a year.
I decided to order the Garmin. 🙂
I also decided to give my sister my Polar, now that she is being all active then I think it’s good for her to have one. So I told her this morning and we are going to replace the battery. She asked if she had to keep her name Millie. lol. I told her that was her name.
Anyway, so I should have my new Garmin before Disney!!! Yay! I am way excited and now I’ll be part of the cool Garmin peeps 🙂
Here’s the one I ordered….
Garmin Forerunner 405 🙂 I can’t wait to get this baby in the mail. Yay! I won’t have to mapmyrun anymore ahead of time or use my phone. hee hee. I wish it had flowers on it like my Millie did. haha. Jk. (or am I?..)
Questions: Do you have a hrm? Did you go straight to the Garmin or mess around with other brands?
I’m working on my running playlist right now for Disney. Is there any new songs you recommend I add?
