Hey fellas and ladies. So I have an issue. I've been exercising regularly for about 3 months now by doing jogging and brisk walking. Just basic cardio to get my terrible heart into shape. The thing is, I can't jog for very long at all without my heart rate jumping up to 170-180+. I know this because of a heart rate monitor I wear. I try to breath well as I jog so avoid this, and I generally exercise on an empty stomach, so I don't know what's causing the jump. I really want to move on from mostly brisk walking to something a bit more difficult, but I've been told by others if my heart rate gets that high it turns my exercise into anaerobic. Which I believe because jogging too long gives me cramps and I'm out of breath really quick. I'm going to see a doctor about it if it can't resolve itself with either better breathing or more hydration, but was wondering if there's anything you folks had experience with to remedy this. Thanks :D TLDR; Heart rate sky-rockets when jogging. What do?
