Heart beating loud, irregular causing sleeplessness. Suggestions?

I am 71 and it excellent health, no meds at all. I work out 6 to 7 times a week. My question is : should I be concerned because last night I could not fall asleep because my heart was beating loud and irregular so it would keep me from falling asleep. Eventually I fell asleep about 2 hours after going to bed. MY heat has been back to normal all day since I got up. It was a cardio day today and it went very well.
