Resting Heartbeat

Postby dsmiff » Tue May 22, 2007 20:54 pm

I have been riding to work for over 1 year now. I ride fairly intensivly for about 20 mins each way every day - Avg almost 20mph(on road bike). I ride at the weekend at Llandegla at (what I think) is a more than respectable pace.

My resting heatbeat is around 70, but just standing up jumps to over 100, when I had a health check at work my fitness came out as moderate.

I have lost 3 stone (now 12.5 stone) over this time and was a complete slob before - what's going on, should I worry or will it just take more time???

I'm going to put a HRM on tommorow morning and see what it's running at!

I pesonally wouldn't worry 'bout it. I know that you can use a HRM to exercise in certain zones. But sometimes wonder if they give to much info anf therefore worry arises from their use. I only worry when my resting heart rate goes to zero, but a quick smack on the chest gets it going again... well so far......

Good point - not seen zero yet!!!

I know when I first started cycling it was peaking at over 190 - stopped wearing the thing soon after and it was only after having a health check at work did I get it out again.

Might explain why I feel a bit light headed after standing up.

Yes some of the symptoms like my incredibly small bladder I've had since birth! But when you read them together.....

I once had a lump in my groin, went on the internet and invented all sorts of illnesses for myself - In the end it turned out to be a hernia (It took me almost year to see a doctor) - us blokes are really pathetic when it comes to health!!

too much information........

I call that a head-rush, definitely know the feeling. I usually get them from exercise withdrawal. They're most annoying when you go for a pi** in the middle of the night, when you have the light beat you in the face
