This week's episode is sure to cause some debate -- or perhaps some hurt feelings among the purveyors of the products that we're discussing. But Coaches Dean and Joe both have strong feelings on the subject of heart rate monitors and many other running coaches do as well.
You see, there are coaches that espouse their benefits and some that think that runners with a watch or a pace monitor can get similar or even better feedback.
On this week's episode, we enter the heart rate monitor debate: are they cool or crap?
This week we consider:
-- What do heart rate monitors actually measure?
-- In what cases are heart monitors useful?
-- What factors impact your heart rate outside of your effort level?
-- Where might heart rate monitors steer you wrong?
We thank you for watching and hope that you'll come back again next week when we're sure to have another topic guaranteed to tick off more potential sponsors.
