I went out for a good 25mi ride yesterday on two days rest and fueled pretty good. Other than a super tough 3 min stretch at 170ish I took it pretty easy. My average HR for the whole ride was 135 with occasional peaks up into 160s. Had the following symptoms afterward:
I always feel pretty good initially when I get done - but as the night goes on I get increasingly grumpy and impatient. By the time I went to bed around 11pm, I felt pretty fatigued. I’m always able to fall asleep initially - but I always wake up a couple hours later and I just toss and turn the rest of the night. It’s like one or two hour sleep then 1 hour awake.
Recently though what’s keeping me awake is a strange feeling in my chest. I’ve never had the feeling/sensation before of “feeling my heart pumping”. It feels so weird it keeps me up deep breathing - especially when I lay on either side. It does not seem irregular or fluttering - it’s just unnerving to feel it pumping. Could be a gastro thing - but it def seems to be where my heart is. So yeah going in to the doc as soon as I can. Probably time to just keep it light and easy.
