My Dream Heart Rate Monitor


I have finally decided to get my dream Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) - The Polar FT4 after few months of thinking. These things aren't cheap and since was my birthday, I can finally have it!  Thanks to my daddy plus some savings of mine :)
Can't wait for this weekend so that I can get my hands on them, I had just found out a shopping mall close to me is selling it. But I think I better call them to make sure about it, I would be heartbroken if they don't.

I really feel that this can help me out with my workouts. I'm not a mathematical person but I need to achieve little goals in order to reach a bigger dream so in a way, I think counting numbers here can help me. The same reason why I like running on treadmills better than running on the park.
