BLOGS The Harriers’ Blog contains all the club’s key news bites and info kept up to date on a daily basis. Young Athletes Blog now on-line.
Thanks to the generous assistance of our club sponsor, EKGTA Ltd, the club now has 6 x Polar RS200sd Heart Rate Monitor/Running Computers (HRM) available for the use of members. These devices give an accurate indication of heart rate during exercise and can also be individually calibrated to measure running pace via a foot pod unit attached to your shoe. The club coaches are up to speed on the basics of operation of the devices and can give you a brief induction on how to use it on one of the club training nights. The full manual for the HRM can be downloaded here. The HRM’s can be signed out by individual members according to the rules detailed below. ATHelite Running Supplies have very kindly offered to store and handle the booking of the HRM’s from their shop in The Village, East Kilbride. This means that the HRM’s can be collected during normal shop opening hours Tuesday to Sunday. The current HRM availability can be viewed here, so you can check before making a journey. RULES These are expensive pieces of kit retailing at £175 so please treat them with care and return them complete and intact as supplied. Only fully paid up members of the Harriers can make a booking, as verified by the membership secretary. Please wash and dry the chest strap and wrist unit according to the guidance in the instruction manual before returning. The club can request return of the HRM’s at any time for use at specific training sessions or events.
