I am a Cycle Guide and I had a Biotronic Evity 8 DRT Pacemaker fitted on October 23rd. I am now training hard on the bike for the 2024 season and I am struggling, probably inevitably, with my fitness. I used to race at a top amateur level. My surgeon has set my Pacemaker to 45-130 and I was wondering if the upper level is inhibiting my progress. As a Cycle Coach, I record and monitor all my stats and I have done nearly 50 rides since the operation with my average Heart Rate being around 145 bpm and maximum Heart Rate 165 bpm. So my question is whether the 130 upper limit is appropriate to my current Heart Rate levels?
You know you're wired when...
Youre a battery-operated lover.
So, my advice is to go about your daily routine and forget that you have a pacemaker implanted in your body.
