Ugh…it’s Monday. Monday’s are the worst, aren’t they? Fortunately, I’ve got some good reasons to be excited for this Monday. Last week, I ordered myself some goodies, and they’re all (magically) scheduled to come today! As long as I make it through the work day, I’ll have some exciting new toys to play with. 🙂
One thing I’m getting is a new heart rate monitor! Hooray!! This one is worn on your arm, and I am so psyched. The chest strap is driving me bonkers. I hate it. I’m really enjoying heart rate training, but the chest strap is so so annoying. So I did lots of research and found a heart rate monitor worn on your arm that had pretty good reviews and works with the garmin. If I can get it to connect quickly, I’ll be able to run with it tonight!
My other new “toy” coming tonight is a brand new pair of Newton Gravity sneakers! This is thrilling!
Last fall I bought a pair of limited edition Gravitys that are bright orange, and I love everything about them. Unfortuntely, when I went to purchase a second pair a month ago, they were out of my size, and the normal version came in a hideous pink color. Think pepto bismal. So, I waited, hoping they would release the 2015 models and the colors would be awesome.
Well, they did… And the 2015 model is also neon orange! Yes! I could not be more thrilled. AND, I had a gift card. So, I didn’t even feel guilty buying the brand new model instead of shopping around for a cheaper pink pair.
So, yeah…I guess Monday isn’t always so bad. 🙂
