Heart Rate Monitoring

Been reading alot about heart rate monitoring. Seems like serious runners vary the level of their workouts (recovery, difficult, etc…).

I basically go out and run as hard as I can every run. I am starting to think this is a bad thing… Debating on upgrading my Garmin Forerunner 205 to the Garmin Forerunner 305 to get into the heart rate monitoring scene.

Not really sure what I’m doing so any comments would be appreciated.

Any thoughts?

    I don’t have a heart rate monitor but I have heard from different runners they can be really annoying because they beep all the time. Eventually that defeats the purpose since you just come to ignore it.

    Thanks for the input Jim! Definitly something to consider. Between my Garmin and my Metronome I already sounds like an 18 wheeler backing up.
