Unfortunately this isn’t about Hermann Buhl’s epic meth-fueled descent of Nanga Parbat, but about a college student in over his head with math classes.
I’m currently in the transition period getting ready for a summer of peak bagging, bushwhacking, and technical alpine climbing, focusing my training mostly on my weak point which is aerobic endurance. That being said, I am in classes and have ADHD, so I take an as-needed prescription of Vyvance.
One of the noticeable effects of vyvance is an increase in heart rate. I have already confirmed with my primary physician that it is safe for me to exercise after taking vyvance, but am curious about the effect it would have on my heart rate zones or if much research has even been put into this in the first place?
I usually run in the mornings and take vyvance afterwards, but on days like today where I’ve slept in, I’m curious about whether my workouts will be less effective since I must maintain a slower pace in order to stay situated below AeT. Is elevating the heartrate to zone 2 sufficient aerobic training in and of itself or do other physiological stresses need to be present? Thank you!
