I am just starting to try and take up running/jogging. It's always been difficult for me.
I have a HRM (polar FT4) and when I run, my heart rate spikes to my maximum (200 bpm).
Is this safe? is it possible that this isn't my maximum?
It was a VERY light jog. Nice, easy and slow... so that i can build up to more. But my heart rate was sort of scaring me.
Is there a way to find out my ranges?
I know my resting rate is higher than average because my blood pressure is so low.
I bought my HRM as a tool to lose weight, andI can easily do a brisk walk for 45 minutes, but it doesn't seem to affect my heart, cardio, or weight like I was hoping. I need to boost the intensity.
