If you have been training with the monitor, you probably have a better sense of your level of exertion than you might think. Go for a run with it and try to guess you HR before looking at your monitor. If you are pretty close, you probably don't need the monitor for a sprint. If it comes to it, the barf-o-meter never fails- EVER!
That said, however, if you feel better with your monitor, by all means use it (as sprocketman suggests).
