I've been doing more hill training in prep for ride events this fall. My night-time blood pressure has been running pretty high days of training, ranging avg. of 170/110. I can only imagine what the reading would be in the middle of a hill climb. I'm afraid it may be dangerously high.
My morning blood pressure readings have been in the 130's/80's, with a pulse of avg. 64.
I know it's time to visit the family physician, and I also know he's probably going to put me on BP medication.
My question is: does anyone here ride while on BP medication. And, if you do, are you still able to enjoy your riding? Or have you had to make changes in your riding while on medication?
This will be the first health-related medication that I have ever had to take.
I don't have anyone else to ask these questions to, so I thought I'd try the group here.
