Hi Michael,
            BP goes up *during* exercise (mostly systolic), something
like this:

  Before exercise         130/80
  During exercise         170/80    (30 minutes fast walk)
  2 minutes after         150/80
  30 minutes after        130/75
  1 hour after            110/70
  2 hours after           120/65
  4 hours                 125/75
