micardis exercise

This is more for information than a question. I am on micardis 80/12.5 for six months. Previous was on ACE 10mg. BP before micardis 150/90. Now 120/75. But the effect I noticed was on exercise. I jog 3 times a week for 20 years now. Before micardis 5km 30 minutes peak HR 165 av142. There are some hills in the jog. I am 56yrs. After taking Micardis 6 months I cant get to 165 HR I have to walk at about 155bpm and do 5km in 35 minutes. Stopped Micardis for 2 days, now back to normal for jog but BP slightly up. Will not stop taking drug but interesting to note the effect on performance. Is this typical?
