Sometimes I Wonder About Myself
We're going to have to file this one under "gross due to sheer ignorance" and part of me is wondering why I am even sharing this, but hey, if nothing else, I am always good for a chuckle or two.
So most of you know that a few weeks (probably months now) ago, I got my first heart-rate monitor so I can track how many calories I am burning. I got one of the nifty Polars with the wristwatch tracker and the elastic strap monitor that goes around your chest, and since I got it I pretty much have been using it every single day. Which is super duper cool, because that means I am working up a sweat for my health almost daily.
But about a week ago I did stop using the monitor because frankly, the elastic strap was getting mighty funkelicious. Thank me for being a profuse sweater.
And it took me until this past weekend to finally Google "how to clean heart monitor strap" and lo and behold, the magical mystery behind it all was "soap and water." You know, squirt some soap on it, run the strap under water and hang it to dry - boom! In fact, most people recommend washing the strap after every workout, or at minimum once a week.
Except if you're me. If you're me, then you can just wallow in your own ignorant swampy stank for weeks on end. The more you know, people. Happy Hump Day.
