    Back when I was a long distance runner, I had to have a physical for grad school. My dad did it. He was an MD. Took my pulse once. Shook his head. Took it again. Shook his head. I said "It's okay. 48 is normal for runners."

    It rose after I stopped running but it's back in the 40s again. When I had my colonoscopy, they gave me a shot to raise my heart rate to give the anesthesiologist some margin for error.

    I think my best resting HR was 42 during my CC physical in HS...doc was a little alarmed until he remembered why I was there for the physical.

    If only I could get it that low again today.

    My normal resting heart rate is between 37-40, which is low, even for an athlete. My blood pressure is also unusually low when resting. It is always super fun freaking out the new nurses at my doctor's office every year.

    I was low 40s when I was a runner. Even with all the cycling now, I'm pretty much 50 at best. I suppose that could be age as well as not running, but I'm blaming not being able to run.

    I can't humble brag about my resting heart rate - except that once, for about an hour, I got it all the way down to zero.

    They turned it off for a little while so they could fix it.

    Default Yay, indeed!

    I just joined this forum, still trying to figure it out, and hoping to do Freezing Saddles. Cheers.
