Same here. I think I noticed that this effect is more present when I had simple carbs prior to the workout. It’s not so bad when working out fasted or with complex carbs and fat prior to the training.
I’m on the 24 week mountaineer program, and I’m working through the base phase now.
For my aet runs, during warmup I am keeping my pace / breathing pretty light — however despite pretty easy effort, my heart rate spikes. After 10 minutes it drops and stays at aet the rest of the time
When I started the program, I had tried to manage my heart rate from the start of the run by slowing down to keep it lower. The problem I ran into is that my heartrate would drop and spike throughout the run, so I don’t think I was getting a proper warmup.
I decided I would just keep the overall effort low for the warmup, and to just check on my heartrate after about 10 minutes and I found that it stabilized. Is this the right approach? Should I try again to just keep my heart rate lower directly from the start, or is it OK to let it go a bit higher during warmup since the effort seems similar as during the run itself?
