Brief Answer: Please follow the suggestions below... Detailed Answer: Hi Mr. XXXX! I read carefully your query and i would like to say, it's clear to me that you are practicing a lot of sport (running). I wish to congratulate because this is a good thing especially for your heart. Now the fact that your heart rate is still 100 beat per minute after 2.26 mile run is related with your athletic training. This is typical for an athlete heart, to have a low heart rate at rest and a minimal heart rate increase at physical activity. Otherwise if you are not trained in running, you should go for a cardiologist consultation and examination. Hope it answered your inquiry! Dr.Benard p.s. if you have other concerns, do not hesitate to contact me.
