Peak in heart rate at beginning of run
I experience in some of my runs a very high heart rate (sometimes close to max) in the first 5-10 min of a run even I run easy pace. I use a chest strap and I’m pretty sure it’s not a device issue.
I have the feeling I occurs especially when it’s colder outside and I had a busy day or was in a hurry to get out for a run.
After maybe 10min the heart rate goes back to normal level and I can continue as usual.
Any idea where this comes from? Can I just ignore it? Is there any warm up routine to help it?
