I exceeded my maximum heart rate today. I should not go over 164 bpm. I maxed out at 167. And I had a rate over 160 bpm for 7 minutes and 5 seconds. Part of the reason I had a high heart rate was the 120 pushups I did during my stretch before running. The other reason is the warmer weather. So, I need to drink some water to cool down my core. Otherwise, I’m going to experience an elevated heart rate for most of the day. I also tend to be spacy when I’ve redlined for too long.
Past efforts considered I’ve pushed myself harder. I did pull back on my exertion once Runtastic told me I was in Zone 5 (which is the Red Line Zone).
