Resting heart rate
My rhr is normally around 52. Occasional dips to high 40s but brief no averages.
PE, age 45 (and counting!).
I can tell you my average over a week is 63 and lowest during that time was 57. Unfortunately this is because I had to do a weeks worth of home Blood pressure readings as my blood pressure was high when GP took it!
What amazes is me is that only really been running for a year and assuming I had around the average pulse of 72 previously that is a more than 10% reduction. Just shows you the wonder of running!
Thought I'd strap on the HRM cos it's been a while since I've really checked. When I head out the door for a run it's usually around low-mid 50s. Sitting down now, 40 - 42. I've seen as low as 36 but I have just been doing some strenuous washing up.
My kitchen's waht you might call bijou - no room for a dishwasher and that's just being lazy anyway.
I did sneak a 38 just now but it'll be going up shortly as my body works its magic digesting red meat, red wine and chocolate cheesecake.
Rhr is very low 40s, fluctuates a little. Age 52.
I went under the knife a few years ago. I was lying on the slab, the surgeon was firing up his Black & Decker, the anaesthetist was sticking various things in me and my hr was 47. They had to double-check it was correct.
And there were several pleasant young ladies dressed up in nurse's uniforms too.
Lowest recorded is 39bpm but usually around 41/42 - im 39 years old. I've read that this figure should be used against your MHR to work out training paces but I've never bothered.
mhr usually 33-36 age 31.
44 age 18
Genetically mine should be very low as both my grandfathers have had an average of zero for a few years now!!
rhr 51 age 49
Usually around 45, have seen it drop to 38 few time. Not checked in ages though, I wonder if its still the same.
