For some time now I'm working with an exercise physiologist to try make progress in exercising. I'm "training" wearing a hr monitor and data are sent to a lap top. Today we've analyzed the data and there are a few very striking things. One of them is that biking is much harder on my body than walking. I get higher heart rates and HRV (Heart Rate Variability) is very irregular (where being active a fluent line is expected). Walking my heart rate is much lower also showing an irregular HRV but more "in line" with hr. Extra octreotide (subc.) made the HRV much more fluent (esp walking) AND I felt much much better exercising. My question is, why is biking harder on my body than walking? My physiologist hadn't seen this in any of his patients. The only thing I could think of is that walking activates the heart more (pumping). Do any of you experience the same? Biking being harder on my body was very noticeable for me. Extra octreotide helped make me feel better but the figures still say the same thing. I'm trying to understand esp as since having surgery last July I'm doing so much worse. In trying to understand I hope to get a lead from where we can work in trying to get better. My other question is, why would octreotide make me feel better while exercising, could it be the constricting properties? I hope my post makes sense as I'm having lots of brain fog atm (subc octreotide only works for 3 1/2 to 4 hours)
The other day I took my BP/HR after 35 minutes on my treadmill. I was working fairly hard (for me), cooled down for a minute or two, and then took my readings. I had bascially no change! My BP was about what it is when I'm sitting (90/65) and my HR was 71. Anyone else have these kind of results after exercise?? Normally when I stand, my BP goes to about 65-75/55 or so, and my HR goes up from about 65 to 120. Of course, I'd been upright for at least 45 minutes by that time... I'm really interested in what others get for their readings. I got a Timex HR watch for Christmas, and as soon as I get through the directions, I hope it gives me more answers. No wonder I feel so awful when I get done exercising! Thanks and cheers, Jana
