Is normal to have a heart rate around 150 when climbing 6 sets of stairs and above the stairs your first date is waiting?

In brief: Not unusual

6 flights of steps, particularly if you're not in shape, can raise your pulse pretty high.
The added excitement of a new date can enhance the response. If your pulse recovered quickly and without skipped beats, I say its normal. Maybe you need to exercise more often? Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
