Something is up with my heartrate

My jet-lag refuses to go away. I went to bed early last night and was up before the crack of dawn today. At around 5:15AM, I decided to go for a longish run around DC Ranch. I ended up doing a bit more than an hour for around 8.5 miles, but by the end of it, I was quite exhausted.

Something peculiar is going on with my heart-rate. After about 4 miles, it was up into the level 4 range (around 160BPM) which is quite unusual at a relatively easy pace of around 8 minutes per mile. Maybe it’s the heat, maybe it’s my lack of exercise over the past 2 weeks, or maybe I’m just fatigued from all the travel.

I am thinking of doing a 5k evening race this weekend (Saturday), but it is expected to be HOT. We’ll see…
