I had a very inactive lifestyle and have never been involved in any activity that keeps me in an active zone. But in recent years, I have been following a routine where I start to follow a strict diet, go to the gym, and do cardio (jogging) sessions for 3-4 months every year to maintain my weight. So I am not very experienced at workout/jogging.
This is the 5th time I am doing this, and it takes me 3 to 4 weeks to get back on track where I left off last time.
Previously, I have been doing interval training for jogging (two weeks ago I was at 60/30 seconds run/walk interval for 20-25 mins). I used to stop when it became very difficult to maintain my breath and my heart was pumping.
I changed my routine two weeks ago such that, every other day, I go straight for jogging after weight training and do a continuous slow jog (10-11 min/mile). This way I maintain my breath and when I stop I don't feel like I have done a long jog. I am quite happy with this routine and the weight loss results are also good. The problem is that my heart rate really goes up (170-180) during this jogging session but I don't even feel it going up and don't have any breathing problems. I can have a conversation while jogging. I thought there was a problem with my watch so I changed it but got a similar result on a different tracker. I am worried about keeping the heart rate at this pace for 15 minutes that I might create problems later on. Please let me know your comments and thoughts on whether it is an okay condition or if should I change my routine.
Thanks in Advance!
