Pulse Spikes

Okay I don't know what else to call it. *Here is my question/experience. *I have been doing CF hard core for about a year now. *I am 41 and in the best all around shape of my life. *What I am noticing is this: *I always take the stairs at work, only four floors. *But when I reach the top floor I am breathing heavily and my pulse rate is elevated a good bit. *Once I get to my cubical it quickly returns to normal. *Several of the people that I work *with who also crossfit *experience the same thing. *My *hypothesis is that since the body adapts to exercise maybe it thinks we are starting an AMRAP or something and goes into overdrive to compensate. *Any thoughts? *
