If you would have told me at the beginning of 2014 that by the end of the year I’d not only love running, I’d have run my first half marathon, I might have laughed in your face.
When I started into 2014 I knew I wanted to focus on weight loss and fitness, but I had no clue I’d find running after years of saying I wasn’t a runner.
Training for my first half marathon had so many unexpected perks that it was impossible not to start loving my time that I spent pounding the pavement. So it’s no surprise that for 2015 many of my fitness goals revolve around running.
For starters I’d like to run 1000 miles. While I think that is a total huge goal for me, I think that I will accomplish it by training for my next 3-4 half marathons and my first sprint triathlon.
I haven’t signed up for all of them yet, but I’d like to do at least three of these races:
- Six Tunnels to Hoover Dam Half Marathon
- Summerlin Half Marathon
- Saints and Sinners Half Marathon
- Rock N Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon
I trained for my first 13.1 without a GPS watch, but thankfully I won’t have to do that again. This year I will be using the TomTom Runner. I was in the middle of researching which watch was right for me and my goals when I was given the opportunity to review the TomTom Runner Cardio GPS Watch. When I found out I didn’t need to use a chest strap with it, I got even more excited.
This watch has SO many amazing features, but my favorite is just how user friendly it is. No accidentally stopping my watch by fumbling with buttons!
Starting at top Right moving down and around:
- Decide if you are running outside, treadmill, or just need the stop watch feature
- If you choose to run the GPS and hear trate will start.
- When GPS is ready it will tell you to GO!
- Once you are running your can easily toggle between screens including time, duration, clock, pace, calories, and distance. The top two boxes will always show your time and distance.
- Train efficiently with the heart rate monitor (no chest strap needed). You can focus on 5 zones to make sure you are getting the most from your training!
Once you are finished running you will see a screen that puts all your stats on the page for you.
You can then use the TomTom MySports app or plug your watch into your computer to see your splits, elevation, and more!
Some other great features include:
- Built-in Heart Rate Monitor and Heart Rate Zones make heart rate training easy and accessible so you can always train in your optimal heart rate zone
- Built-in GPS receiver provides real-time running information at a glance so you can track your distance, time, pace, speed and calories burnt as you run
- Tracking long-term progress is easy with TomTom MySports
I look forward to using my TomTom Runner Cardio GPS Watch to help me improve my speed and endurance in 2015!
But I am not planning to solely focus on running, some of my other fitness goals are:
- Make at least 1 group run a week
- Focus on Strength Training
- Yoga weekly
