Brief Answer: Look normal to me. Detailed Answer: Hello, This raise in heart rate on exercise returning back to normal without symptoms looks pretty normal to me.Only minor worry is reaching upto 130 beats. I would generally recommend a primary cardiac evaluation with EKG and 2Decho in cases like yours.And if at all needed stress test. So please consider seeing you cardiologist. Regards.
