I’m like you, Frankie. Morning is better for me — especially after plenty of coffee. But since my ticker has been giving me issues, I try to be more cautious now by measuring my heart rate (HR) with an app on my phone. After I climb into my chair but before I drink coffee or take heart meds, I do 3 quick measurements. Any HR over 100 beats per minute (BPM) means I either cancel physical training (PT) or take it really easy. Twice I’ve ignored those warnings and twice my heart spiraled into failure.
Anyway, after coffee and meds (right before PT), I measure HR again with the app. Usually, it’s even better. After PT, like exactly right after, I measure HR again. It’s always over 100 BPM, but that’s expected. I eat a light snack and rest…maybe get 10-20 minute nap.
