any ideas. I couldnt keep it down and it was higher then normal even under lower efforts. I called it a day. I still feel tired and somewhat winded. Does this happen from over training? I had a heavy week in the gym. For reference it would staya round 180 to 190:D

You said it, it sounds like your body is still still trying to recover from the week you gave it. A higher HR is a sure size of this. For myself in this case I could be 10-12 beats higher then normal doing the same ride/same pace.
Sounds like you need an extra day or two off.

I do agree that being fatigued will make it harder to increase your HR. That's happened to me.

Try to rest a few days. If it continues, call the doc to be on the safe side. There's certainly no harm in doing that.

If you're recovering or perhaps just in the early stages of catching a cold your HR will also be through the roof.

Last week during training my HR was 18 beats higher than normal...sure enough I had the flu two days later.
