Today I took advantage of a day off from my internship to head out for a mid-day bicycle ride.  What a pleasure!

It was about 26 degrees F in Connecticut but with proper layering I didn’t notice the cold or the wind at all.

What I did notice is how easily I could read my heart-rate with the new Timex Ironman Race Trainer Pro on my wrist!

With a great workout planned:

3 x 15 min in Zone 3

1.5-2 min recoveries

total 1 hr 15 mins on the bike

I was thrilled to be able to focus on my intervals and not struggle to catch a glimpse of my heart-rate.

The unique position of this watch on the wrist and large display allows a cyclist to keep their hand on the hood, aerobar or in the drop and still be able to see the screen!

It was truly Love at first Sight!

Easy visibility of the Ironman Race Trainer Pro while in the hoods on my 'cross bike.
