So, I’m pushing myself pretty hard these days so decided to get myself a heartrate monitor – being an auld fella and all that. Without going in to too much detail it transmits my heart rate to my Garmin 810. That means I can see how far I am pushing myself, and where on the cycle my heart rate is peaking. Brilliant – except for the fact that i have no idea what my heart rate should be.
So off to Dr Michael I went. About half a litre of blood later, I was on my way feeling pretty good with myself. He reckons I’m grand, now all I have to do is wait on the results of the blood tests which will be through tomorrow with a bit of luck!
