Cardio vascular fitness is measured by seeing how long it takes for a stressed heart to get back to normal.I don't drink coffee or consume much caffeine. I am going to the doctor, I just wanted to know whether anyone experienced the same thing as me,so I could get some answers as no doctor has provided me with any answers.
I've been cycling for 8 years and do 4000+ miles a year with multiple long, hilly rides.As you get used to that exercise and get fitter your HR after will be lower and closer to your wake up and before you eat anything resting HR.
3 hours after cycling for 3 hours my heart rate is still
very high@106. Is my heart rate high because of the cycling?
1) You have not established that 106 is 'high' for you.so I could get some answers
My RHR is currently sitting at 47 bpm and with light activity it rises to the mid sixties. My BP is 116 over 69.Many years ago, when I was running 50+ miles a week and running sub 3 hour marathons, my resting heart rate was in the 50's and I could push it to ~200 with some fast interval training or towards the end of a shorter race.
Since I started cycling to work, others have noticed physical changes to my body and passed comment.I don't drink coffee or consume much caffeine.

My son bought me an Honor Band 5 for fathers day earlier this year. Only cost £25.If you are not already using a heart rate monitor (like a Fitbit, for example), perhaps you should consider getting one.
So you don’t cycle that much each year. That’s quite a low annual figure. Sounds like plenty of opportunity for you to get fitter. You just need to change things up to get off your plateau.I've been cycling for 8 years and do 4000+ miles a year with multiple long, hilly rides.
I ain't going to get any fitter. It's just who I am
FTFYI reckon everyone
over thirtyshould be encouraged to [exercise] monitor their own stats and take corrective action. It would remove a fair bit of pressure from the NHS.
Cycling on a road bike, especially if you do a bit of hill work, engages your core quite a bit and your upper body to some extent, when you get out of the saddle particularly. You don't particularly notice it at the time, but over time you definitely see the effects.Since I started cycling to work, others have noticed physical changes to my body and passed comment.
The obvious one is the bulging calf and thigh muscles along with the loss of the pot belly.
On Friday, one of our directors (who I hadn't seen for over a year) asked me if I'd taken up weights due to my newly V shaped body.
I can't be bothered with upper body shite like push ups and weightlifting so there seemed to be no logical reason for my upper half to benefit from something my lower half was doing?
The reason for my new V shape is that my heart is a muscle and when you ride a bike hard, your muscles grow.
Your lungs expand, your heart gets bigger.
A bigger heart has a greater blood volume and it doesn't need to pump quite so many times per minute to move your blood around the body.
If you want to build muscle, you need to increase your protein intake and even more so the older you get.
