I am a 33 year old guy, and have just started running. I have led a very lethargic life style still now. So expectedly I get tired easily. However, what concerns me is the extremely high level that my heart rate goes up to! Within 80-90 seconds of running at 5 Miles/hour, heart rate shoots up to 182-185! By 2 minutes mark, it touches 200, and I have to stop/slow down.
Same thing happenned last year, when I started training with a personal trainer. My trainer had to stop me (At that time, it had actually shot up to 215, as we were not measuring heart rate at start of running), and she suggested that I get a heart check up before any physical exercise. I did get a thourough check up and the doc did not find anything unusual.
Has anyone experienced such high heart rates as a beginner? Can I expect this to come down as I continue running?
