Gave myself a scare this morning using new heart rate monitor.
I started week 2 run 1 with five minute warm up walk at 5.5km/h and then skipped to 8km/h for first 90 sec run.
My heart rate dumped from 89 to 165+
Yes, I eased off for the next couple of runs, and found that on the third run my heart rate settled to about 130.
At first I wondered if I had been over-doing it but I now believe that I didn't warm up properly.
My next run is Wednesday morning, so I am going to try including a couple of shorter, 30 sec, runs in the warm up so that I don't frighten my heart again.
Any advice on warm up warmly welcomed.
