hello IST buddies
I recently started running (important note: complete amateur and retard) because it's supposedly good for me (I have slightly low blood pressure and some heart thing that makes it unable to regulate my blood pressure properly, but it's pretty controlled and I never really experience significant symptoms)
I bought a smartwatch-like thing, and I immediately noticed a high resting heart rate, in the 70s or 80s. Pretty bad, but one more reason for me to run, so far as it should lower it. Anyways, when I went for a short run with it, it tracked my heart rate; showing that, after just a couple of minutes of light running, it reached the 180s/190s. Me being the smart guy I am, I paid no mind to it because I thought it was good to get my heart rate very high during exercise. Turns out it's not that good.
However, I'm able to have full on conversations with people with no trouble while running with my heart rate like that, I'm able to keep that pace and heart rate for over 40 min.
What should my next step be? My BMI is around 20, my blood is normal, no thyroid issues etc.
