flushed face after exercising
I've noticed that sometimes after a workout, my face gets quite flushed. My mother and sister are concerned about this and think that I am overexerting myself. I am careful not to overdo. In fact I saw a trainer and got my aerobic threshold tested and well as my heart rate zones. My trainer told me how long to exercise in certain heart rate zones to optimize both fat loss and increasing aerobic capacity. I have been following this plan religiously.

Can someone get a flushed face from overexerting? How do you know when too much is too much? Could my trainer be expecting me to do too much too soon?
