High heart rate
I class myself as a moderately healthy 35 year old, bit overweight (6 ft, 95 kg). I've decided to use cycling to aid weight loss and increase fitness by setting myself a target of completing a century ride later this year. I currently cycle a 12 mile daily commute with longer rides up to 30 miles at weekends. So, I decided to get a Garmin edge to aid training. I've used it for the first time this morning and was alarmed that my heart rate was up to 190 at one point and frequently in the 180s without much perceived effort. This is abnormal, right? Anyone have any advice other than get ghee sen off to doctor, pronto? I should sat, the commute is broken down into segments between train stations, this was during a 3 mile stint.
