Richard A. Weaver
I was a long time runner, competing in college in division 3 X-country and track events, doing marathones, etc. I continued running, at times 100 miles per week. In my 40's I developed knee pain while running, and eventually had to have arthroscopy. I thought my running days were over, and stopped. 5 years later, I read the book "Born to Run". I started researching forefoot running, and decided to try. After a slow converstion, I am back to running 5 miles w/ a minimalistic shoe. I have my Polar RS800CX watch w/ cadence sensor and GPS to guide my progress. Amazingly(to me) despite being off for so long, I was able to achieve excellent mile times immediately (7-8 min miles) w/ forefoot running. My Polar watch has allowed me to track such indices, and allowed me to gradually reintroduce myself to the sport I LOVE.
For multisport athletes
No matter the terrain, whatever the sport, the RS800CX is the most accurate way to measure your speed and distance as well as plan, monitor and analyze your body's response to your training sessions. You can also see your route on a map after the training session. Ideal for cross-terrain sports like running, cycling, Nordic skiing, in-line skating, and kayaking, this is an essential addition to your training.Find your Polar product
