Old man on the run monitoring his BPM

Posted , 2 users are following.

I'm a young man Aged 65. Just wondering if anyone with a similar profile or someone in the know can comment please. Run regularly, around 4 times a week up to 4 -5 miles. Outside and treadmill. Pace at around 11 mins per mile. Heart BPM usually in control. Waking is around 50, running average is around 135 -140. It spikes now and again but not for long. But a couple of times in the last 3 months my BPM have averaged around 170 spiking at 198 and stayed there for up to 20 minutes. No other symptoms other than than an energy power drain, remedied with energy bars. Should this concern me? Thanks for reading.
