HEIGHT­ENED HEART RATE

Trail Running (UK) - - Warm- Up -

Symp­toms: Your rest­ing pulse is higher than nor­mal over a pe­riod of days. So­lu­tions: “I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced this symp­tom of over-reach­ing,” says Dr Mur­ray. “I was run­ning John O’Groats to the Sa­hara, 34 miles a day. I knew that this was a symp­tom and couldn’t do much about the vol­ume, but I made sure I was op­ti­mis­ing rest and re­fu­elling prop­erly.” It’s use­ful to know your av­er­age rest­ing HR – us­ing dig­i­tal mon­i­tors or a log­book – and tak­ing it at con­sis­tent, rest­ful times of the day.
