High Blood Pressure = not enough tempo?

Ok guys, yesterday I got my blood pressure measured and it was a little high 150/80. I never had BP that high before, so I started thinking what I was doing before that I’m not doing now, and to be perfectly honest, I THINK I was doing more CV work.

Question being: “can a drop in tempo work or not enough tempo lead to a rise in BP?”

I know there’s a whole slew of factors like died, vascular peripherical resistance, excercise prior to measurement, but all factors bein already considered.
