""Heart rate training for me has made the difference between being overtrained and being ready to run on race day. My heart rate monitor helps me gauge my training intensity, making sure I'm going hard on hard days and easy on recovery or long days. It's been the key addition to my training program that I wish I'd had in the early days of my career.""
""In my nine years of training and racing with a heart rate monitor, I have come to realize the importance of maintaining a precise level of intensity in my workouts.
