She's Alive

I do have a pulse! After buying two non-functional Suunto T3 heart rate monitors from City Sports last week, I gave up on the idea of trying something new and went back to the Polar F6. (Despite the issues, I have to say that everyone at City Sports was very nice.) I can happily say that in Marion's 45 min. class at ZoneHampton this morning, I burned 318 calories, hit 175 as my max and averaged at 145. I would've guessed the numbers would be higher - this was a tough class - so this is good to know.

I spent the walk down there justifying the impulse spend: (1) Equinox 74 has no early am classes on Tuesdays; (2) it's raining so I'd have to run indoors (3) perfect excuse to get the good coffee from Food Emporium on the way home. Once there, however, I had no regrets other than my choice of bikes. I'm guessing "ow" yelping guy behind me got his coffee before class.
