Elevated HR (especially during exercise) is seen quite often after Covid. You were sick one year ago!? That’s quite some time! Any other symptoms? What about the ectopics? How often? How do you feel them? Is it restricting your training?
Have you seen a cardiologist? ultrasound of the heart? bloodwork? ECG? ECG while exercising? …
again more questions than answers;-)
hope it helps anyway!
I’m not entirely sure this is a result of Covid but I’ve reliably tracked a raised HR of 15-20 bpm since Nov last year (Mainly trail running/hiking). I’ve also been diagnosed with ectopics as I started getting flutters at the same time. Wondering if anyone else has had long term elevated heart rates and how best to resolve this. It’s meant that I’m a Zone above what would normally be expected in all my training. I’ve tried to spend time focusing on Z1 training but there doesn’t seem to be any adaptation. It feels like my heart is super sensitive with an increase n effort resulting in elevated bpm compared to what I would typically see. Here’s a hr comparison at the same pace and on the same course, typical of what I’ve seen before and after this happened.
