Yesterday was the first time I had ever worked out with a heart rate monitor. I purchased my FT7 from FIT3 in Vienna, VA on Saturday and utilized one of their awesome groupons! The set up was really simple and I wanted to use it right away. The FT7 tracks my heart rate and calories burned, but I already know what this watch is missing… a GPS to determine how far I have run. The BF and I ran on the Mt. Vernon Trail, which is marked, so we were able to see how far we had run. All in all, I enjoyed wearing the watch and the chest strap on my Sunday run with the BF!
The best part of our 4 mile run however was finding $20 on the trail!! It was AWESOME! BF quickly made a joke saying “it’s like you’re getting paid to exercise.”
My max heart rate was 180 with an average of 157. I was in Fat Burn for 15:38 and was in Fitness for 47:23. We worked out for 1:03:01 and I burned 745 calories.
