I think you mean your BP was 100 over 60......If it's 60 over 100 you've got serious problems
The BP is a little low, but nothing to really worry about, It can vary due to age, stress, illness etc. I seem to remember reading that it's been proven that people with slightly low BP have a reduced risk of getting heart disease which is pretty good.
The resting heart rate sounds about right for someone in good health.
I was speaking to someone recently about this and I seem to recall Lance Armstrongs resting HR was about 30bpm and he had a maximum of about 200bpm
He also has a pretty huge lung capacity, larger than normal lungs and an enlarged heart!!
is it literally the lowest you see your HR go at anytime? I was checking for my resting HR once and got it down to 44bpm, but that was resting to the point where I was falling asleep! It seems if I just sit in a chair and watch my HR I can't go below 50bpm, annoyingly I seem to get excited when I see it dropping and change my breathing which brings it back up again! lol.
Conventionally, resting heart rate is taken on waking in the morning (provided you haven't been shocked out of slumber by a 100 decibel alarm going off next to your ear!).
Also, the rate should be taken for a full minute (ie. by counting the beats for a full 60 seconds rather than just taking a "snapshot" given by a monitor).
Seems a little strange they'd call it 'resting' HR then :huh: I was always under the impression it was as relaxed as you could be (typically in the morning), I'd dread to think what mine would be on a morning walk
My resting heart rate (first thing in morning or before bed) is usually around 55. Lowest I've measured was 52. I'd say for a man, anything under 60 shows above average fitness. the normal range for men is 60-75, for women 70-85 I think.
Reading Chrissie Wellington's book last night she talks about the importance of compression garments as part of the recovery process.
As I'd had a particularly grueling 15 mile run yesterday I thought I'd give it a go.
Still wearing them now. Felt quite snug actually & legs don't feel quite...
I've just ran half a marathon in 1:44:08, I only set out to run a 10k but was in the zone so just pushed myself and ended up running 13 miles. I've never even ran over 10 miles before, I run regularly but only around 3-6 miles a few times a week. Was just wondering where this time sits among the...
I'm new to running and regularly I run with friends on whose cars I leave my spare t-shirt (backpack actually). My concern is that how can I carry my extra t-shirt the days I run alone? I tried carrying a very light backpack but it moves around a lot and gets very uncomfortable.
