For best results, ditch the technology and train by feel, writes Matt Fitzgerald.

Your mind receives a million times more relevant information about how your body is doing than some silly gadget like a heart rate monitor and is able to interpret it much more clearly and immediately. If you feel really strong during a hard tempo run, then you are fit and your body is responding well to your training. Period. It doesn’t matter what number your heart rate monitor spits out.
